share the love… knit bears with us

Posted on: January 31st, 2014 by nina chicago

This weekend we’re kicking off another Charity Knitalong – for our favorite organization, The Mother Bear Project.

Read the inspirational story of how the Mother Bear Project began here.




Many of you joined us the past two summers

to knit and crochet bears for a good cause.


This time, we thought, what better way to feel the

Valentine’s Day love than to make bears

for children who need to feel loved?


Our bears go to The Mother Bear Project

and then get distributed to children who have been impacted by HIV/Aids in Africa and other emerging nations.

We hope you’ll find it in your heart to make a bear this month!


Even if you’ve just learned to knit or crochet, you can do it.

Just grab your size 7 needles and G hooks

(similar sizes will also work).

Yarn will be provided, but feel free to raid your stash

for some worsted weight and/or bring some fiberfill stuffing.


We’ll be making bears together with love on Sundays from 3-5pm:

February 2, 9, 16, and 23.

Come one Sunday, or come all four.


Please call us at 773.486.8996 or email us at to register.

The bear pattern costs $5 and can be purchased in advance

through or Ravelry.


If you’re not able to join us on Sundays, but would like to make a bear on your own,

feel free to bring it to the shop and we’ll send it off with ours.



Here’s a picture of the bears our customers made for us to donate last summer. Adorable!
