COZYRIOT = a group of people who spread the feeling of cozy and warmth.
Spring/Summer 2019 - 100 Hats for 100 Babies. Join us in making 100 hats for 100 babies ages newborn to two years of age. Any design or colour, but please use soft yarn (nothing scratchy) and avoid embellishments that may pose a safety hazard (e.g. buttons, like shown in the image below). Hats can be brought to our Sip n' Stitch socials (see here for dates) or contact Jillian for a Waterloo drop off location. Deadline for donations is October 1, 2019. All hats will be distributed to organizations in Waterloo Region that support moms, babies and parents. Thank you everyone for your generosity!
Winter 2019 - This season our Cozyrioters collectively donated multiple boxes of handmade hats, mitts and scarves to Reception House Waterloo Region. This community-based organization provides a warm welcome to government assisted refugees by offering programs and services that enable them to live healthy and productive lives in Waterloo Region. Our Canadian winters can be harsh, and we want everyone to be cozy and warm! Thank you everyone a million times over for your collective talent and generosity!
