Kid Knits

We are pleased and proud to be partnering with The Hive@305 and Kid Knits!  
Kid Knits was founded 2 years ago by a local philanthropist, 11 year old Ellie.  You can read her story here.  Ellie’s motto is “You are never too young to change a life on the other side of the world”.
On July 9th, 2013 from 1-3pm, we will be offering a loom knitting class, geared towards children, though all are welcome.  The class will take place at The Hive (located on the same floor as The Fiber Universe), with Knitting instruction provided by The Fiber Universe and Kid Knits founder, Ellie.  Cost is $20, and you can sign up in store or on our website
Your $20 covers the Kid Knits kit, which includes:

  • One ball of hand-spun yarn from either Chile or Rwanda, enough to knit one hat and help lift a woman and her family out of poverty.
  • One sustainable, eco-friendly cotton carrying bag for all your knitting supplies, hand-sewn in Chile, Rwanda, or Liberia
  • One personalized gift tag which shares information about the woman that has spun your yarn.
  • One KidKnits logo tag, made in Nairobi, Kenya from recycled aluminum cans.
  • One 9 1/2″ round loom, One knitting hook, and One needle.
