VOLUNTEER ASSOCIATION | Textile Museum of Canada
The Textile Museum of Canada is pleased to assist in the effort of 1,000 Stitches for Syria, welcoming Syrian refugees to Canada with the gift of handmade items to provide warmth and comfort. The organization welcomes handmade hats, mitts, cowls, toys, slippers and blankets, which will all be distributed directly to incoming refugees through COSTI Immigration Services in Toronto.
On Wednesday February 17, join us from 5:30 to 7:30 pm for an evening of knitting and sewing. If you can’t knit or stitch, join us to hear various presentations: an update on the Syrian situation; an update on Syrian settlement in Toronto and the distribution of knitted items from a representative of COSTI; a demonstration of Syrian needlework; as well as the lovely musical tones of the oud.
If you have unused balls of yarn, feel free to drop them off at the Textile Museum of Canada before February 17 for others to stitch. Already finished items can be dropped off at the Museum at any time. We look forward to seeing you there!
