Stitch-In with Anne Carbone: An Open to the Sky Event WILL BE MEETING AT BEACON HEBREW ALLIANCE

EVENT LOCATION CHANGED!! Due to the inclement weather we will be meeting at Beacon Hebrew Alliance, 331 Verplack Ave.

 

Anne and friends will facilitate a stitch-in for knitters and crocheters who would like to make hats which will be given to refugees who are settling in the Albany area. Yarn and patterns will be available, or you may bring your own. There will be a local collection point for completed hats through the end of October. The possibility of future charity projects can be discussed.

Open to the Sky is a reimagining of the ancient Jewish holiday of Sukkot. A sukkah (pronounced sue-kah) is a  sand mandala of a building, open to the sky and used for seven days around the time of the fall harvest and then dismantled. It's rickety and tenuous, creating the illusion of permanence and highlighting the impermanence of everything. For more information about the holiday and Open to the Sky, please click here

All of the programs of Open to the Sky are offered without charge; however, there are (of course) costs associated with the construction and maintenance of this project. If you can help support Open to the Sky with a donation of any size, please click here.
