Loom Knitting: Mad Hatters for Charity
Monday, July 11 and Wednesday, July 13  •  4pm
Emily Kubin has been making a difference in the world, one hat at a time. In total, (as of July 2014) Emily has made, collected and donated over 14,000 winter hats! This number does not include the hats donated by her spinoffs nor the hundreds of scarves, afghans, etc that she has donated. In December 2011, Emily, who was just 17, realized she could help the homeless & working poor in her community of Morristown, NJ, by knitting winter hats for them. On December 27, 2011, Emily’s Hats For Hope Initiative (EHFHI) was born.
