Inspired by the Pussy Hat Project and to show our support for the fight our sisters south of the border are facing to protect their rights, we are gathering together a knitting circle to make pussy hat pins. Using a pattern developed by local knitter Nancy Fisher, we invite you to join us on Feb. 16 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Makers Mercantile to come together to make these pins which we will then sell at the March 4 Makers Market. All money collected from the sale of the pins will be donated to the Huron Women's Shelter to support our sisters in our own community. We will have some supplies available, but if you can, please bring along needles and yarn.
If you can't join us Feb. 16, but would still like to make pins to support this project (link to pattern below), feel free to drop off finished pins to the Makers Mercantile by March 3. If you would also like to make full-sized hats to sell, you can find the pattern at the Pussy Hat Project website.
