From Bernardsville To Mongolia With Love

July 18, 2009 // Filed under Uncategorized

Thanks to a very generous donation of wool yarn from area resident Susan Haynes, the Adult Services department of Bernardsville Public Library was able to organize a charity knitting project this year. Knitters on the library staff, as well as library volunteers and members of the library’s Saturday Crafters group, turned an abundance of colorful skeins into woolen outerwear designed to keep children and adults in Mongolia warm throughout the winter. As you can see, we had spectacular results…

Our charity of choice was the Dulaan Project, under the auspices of F.I.R.E., Flagstaff International Relief Effort, which collects knitted clothing for a yearly shipment to Mongolia. Our knitted goods joined a total of 10 tons of boxed donations which were shipped off on July 10th. All of us who participated in this project felt immense satisfaction in putting our knitting skills to work for others.
