Community Projects

Guild members experience the joys of donating by volunteering with Community Projects. We contribute to agencies supporting individuals and families in need through the following activities:

  • Creating kits or yarn supplies members take and complete for local agencies and organizations;
  • Donate funds raised at the Needles, Notions, and Patterns Sale table;
  • Sorting yarn donations for outside organizations, who then knit for others;
  • Raise funds for local food bank at the Second Chance for Second Harvest December Sale. 

You can visit the Community Project tables at monthly Guild meetings. That's where you'll find our kits, see our samples, and make new friends. Want to volunteer for the Community Projects Committee team? See Volunteer Opportunities.

Kits and Yarn Supplies

  • Kits, printed patterns, and prepared balls of yarn are free and available at the Community Projects tables.
  • Members will knit up the items they take and return the finished knit items at their convenience. 
  • Knitters can also use their favorite patterns or see our Patterns page for new ideas.

We attach a tag to every donated item (except dishcloths and toys) with cleaning care instructions and the knitter’s first name (to personalize the gift). Tags are available at Guild meetings or may be downloaded and printed (see the Donation Tags page).

Needles, Notions, and Patterns

Yarn, needles, notions, and patterns donated to the Guild are sold at discounted prices and are available at most Guild meetings. If you have items you wish to donate, please see instructions on our Donating Supplies page.

Yarn Donated to Others

We accept donated yarn at Guild meetings and some of the yarn is distributed to the community, including WI Department of Corrections, community programs for children and adults, and school art programs. Toiletries are also collected at the December Guild meeting and distributed to community programs.

NOTE: Unable to deliver a donation? Email communityprojects@madisonknittersguild.com. We may be able to arrange a pickup!
