Current Needs

TPP will be drawing for prizes each month for the next 3 months.  Anyone that sends in a hand knit or crochet item from our “Current Needs” list will be entered into a drawing for two yarn prizes each month.  Each hat and each pair of booties will be one entry for the drawing. 

CURRENT KNIT and CROCHET NEEDS:


**3-5lb size BOY hats and booties.  (any pink or purple in the yarn makes it a girl hat)

**6-8 lb size BOY and GIRL hats and booties (we always need more boy colors than girl)

**4th of July hats and Booties- Red, white And Blue.  All sizes.

**Zoo Hats and Booties - All sizes.

**UI Hawkeye (Black and Gold) or ISU Cardinal and Gold Hats and booties - All sizes.

See our Ravelry page for pattern inspiration for the special donations.

We love to pin cute ideas on Pinterest.

We will be updating our website event calendar soon with mail-by dates for the 4th of July, Zoo and Hawkeye donation.

We have a photo album of prizes on facebook. Check it out to see the new prizes.

Now, let’s get those hooks and needles clicking!

Prematurity Awareness Month Fundraiser

November is National Prematurity Awareness Month.  In 2010, there were 4,473 preterm births in Iowa.  Unfortunately, preterm birth leaves thousands of Iowa families in crisis and needing support.  In honor of National Prematurity Awareness Month, we are campaigning to raise $4,473 to support families in Iowa NICUs. Funds will be raised between November 1st and November 17 and used to purchase supplies to support our programs at rock bottom prices on Black Friday (November 29th).  Click here for more information and to find out how you can donate today!

New Donation Center

We are so sad to announce the closing of Crazy Girl Yarn Shop in Coralville.  We would like to thank the staff at Crazy Girl for supporting our mission by being a donation site, ordering baby yarn for our volunteers and hosting our knit-in earlier this year. They will be greatly missed!

With the closing of Crazy Girl, we started searching for another site for our Coralville/North Liberty area volunteers.  We are thrilled to announce that Peg Griffin, owner of Common Threads Quilt Shop, has graciously offered her shop as a new donation center!  Common Threads is located off of 965 on Zeller street in North Liberty.  We encourage you to visit the Common Threads website for more information.  We hope you will stop in to visit and take a look at her selection of quilting fabric!  Please join us in thanking Peg Griffin for her support!
