Autumn and helping the community

Connie came in here a while ago to buy some yarn. She wanted to knit a shawl for her church's fund raiser. She had found the pattern and we could get the yarn for her.

Then she came back with this.

It is a pattern from Jojoland and uses their Rhythm yarn.

In exchange for Connie letting us have this at the shoppe, we are helping her sell it for $200. All of the proceeds will go to the 1st Presbyterian Church in Elk Rapids. It is for a fund raiser that will help families through agencies like the Women's Resource Center.

Connie has put a lot of time and effort into this beautiful shawl. And we know that it will help to make a difference in our community.
