Get your hooks and needles ready for some summer craftivism! Join us for a Welcome Blanket Bee at Atomic Books on Thursday, July 6 from 7-9pm! We will be making 10" blanket squares and sewing up completed squares to make blankets. Atomic is offering Happy Hour prices at their Eightbar for this event. You can bring your own supplies from home, donate $5 to make a 10" square on site with supplies provided by Lovelyarns or you can purchase needles, hooks and yarn to keep for making lots of squares at home. If you don't knit or crochet, we are also happy to have your sewn and quilted blankets and squares. We are partnering with the Welcome Blanket Project which aims to craft 2000 miles of blankets for an installation at the SMART Museum at the University of Chicago in the Fall of 2017. After the show’s close, the blankets will be distributed to refugee resettlement organizations.

A welcome blanket is traditionally created to lovingly mark the arrival of a new person into the world. In the Welcome Blanket project, each handmade blanket is a physical manifestation of this celebration of refugees and other new immigrants: “Welcome to the United States and your new life here! We are so glad you have arrived.”
