UPDATE AUG 11 – Sadly, no one has stepped forward as the new group leader for our knitting nights. For the time being, all future knitting sessions are cancelled. If you have hats or need yarn, please send us a wave and we’ll try to arrange one-on-one meetings.  If you’re interested in leading the group, please let us know.

… fearless leader for Ma Cobb’s knitting army.

Currently our volunteer knitting group is led by our board Chair. However, she’s run away to grad school and can’t guarantee a schedule to accommodate knitting nights in future.

Knitting not afraid of anything toques is an important part of our fundraising (and social) activities, we’d hate to see the group die off while she’s unavailable to manage the ins and outs of the group over the next few years.  With this in mind, we’re looking for a new volunteer coordinator to be responsible for Ma Cobb’s Army.

Currently, we’re meeting at the Carrot Community Coffee House (9351 118 Ave NW, Edmonton) every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month from 6:30-9pm.  The new coordinator may change the date/time and location to meet their scheduling needs.  If a new date, time or location is selected, this information will need to be communicated to our knitters at least a week in advance and the Shindig calendar will be updated accordingly.
