About Us:

Creativity and fun does not start and end with the convention. In addition to preparing a great convention for fans to experience, WhedonCon also hosts special pre-con events. One such event is WhedonKnit Nights!

We are calling upon the generous hearts, boundless energy, and multiple talents of all fandoms to create items for a special cause.  We invite everyone of all skill levels to gather and create knitted/crocheted items for Newborns In Need (SFV Chapter).

Event Details:

We will be focusing on making items for preemie babies. The most sought after items are booties, hats, blankets (small size), and toys.

Bring your ongoing project or start your own!

There will not be a formal teaching session, but there is bound to be really experienced people willing to help!

 

Bring your own:

  • YARN (can be any yarn except WOOL; yarn must also be machine-washable)

  • NEEDLES

  • PATTERNS
