What Is Posies & Lemon Drops?

Posies & Lemon Drops was created in January 2008, to bring attention to those less fortunate than othe and to give those who are interested, a creative outlet in which to help those in need.

What Kind Of Creative Outlet?

Specifically, knitting and crocheting. It may expand to other fiber crafts as we grow but the initial goal is to provide hand crafted items from knitters and crocheters.

What Kind Of Items Are Needed?

The types of items will vary as we continually add new charitable efforts to the blog. The first effort we are hosting is for Ascension Place, we are making washcloths for the residents.

What Are The Deadlines For Sending In Items?

There will be no deadlines if we can help it. Every endeavor will be considered perpetual – meaning for example – that that we will make washcloths for Ascension Place until they tell us they have enough, or that the folks who need handmade pouches with toiletries (more on that later this month – November 2008) tell us they have enough. That way there are less pressures on those who wish to contribute and perhaps more knitters, crocheters and sewers will be interested enough to participate.

Why Was Posies & Lemon Drops Created?

Over the holidays in 2007 I found myself wanting to do something for others – to pay it forward, so to speak. Knowing how much we fiber fans all enjoy helping others I knew had to set this up.

Who Am I?

My name is Patty, I am an avid knitter, I learned how to knit about 8 years ago. I enjoy going to the various Stitches Events that are hosted in Illinois and in California to take knitting workshops (my favorite instructor thus far – Melissa Leapman), I believe Stitches West 2008 will be my 8th one, though it might be my 9th. 🙂 I learn so much everytime, from the workshops and the knitters I meet.

Who To Contact With Questions

Send an email to posiesandlemndrops@gmail.com. I’ll respond as quickly as I can.

Edited 11/07/2008 – I’ve neglected this blog for awhile but will be spending much more time here shortly. I’ll have some updates on other ideas by the end of November. By the way, we have donated 101 washcloth packages to date. I still have about 12 to put together, I just need to pick up the flowers I use. I’m so proud of everyone!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
