Hope Spinnery’s “Stocking Up for Art” is a community knitting project that will benefit the Hope and Appleton schools.

Knitters of all ages are invited to knit a unique holiday stocking for a good cause. Working with Partners for Enrichment, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing elementary school children of Hope and Appleton with enrichment opportunities in the arts and sciences, Hope Spinnery’s community knitting project will raise funds for the arts programs of the Hope and Appleton schools.

Using original designs created by Hope Spinnery’s Bill Huntington and donated yarn scraps, members of the local (and extended) community will craft individual stockings to be sold at the Spinnery’s “Winterworks” holiday sale Dec. 4 and 5. Proceeds from the sale of these one-of-a-kind stockings will go to Hope and Appleton students by way of arts in their schools.

Knitters may do their work at home on their own schedules or join others at the Hope Spinnery for any or all of the next six Sunday afternoons. From Oct. 31 to Nov. 28 Huntington and Kari Luehman will be available for coaching, questions, conversation and knitting each Sunday from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

Hope Spinnery will supply a stocking pattern and can also supply yarn scraps for those who have none.
