Atlanta Knitting Guild gives for the Season

December is the traditional month for the Atlanta Knitting Guild to present Trauma Bears to the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy. All year, members knit clothes for the bears. As you can see, they always show a lot of creativity. The Center allows the children to pick a bear to help them deal with the trauma they have experienced. This year, we presented 170 bears to the Center.

Now we are starting to knit for the 2010 Bear season. You can provide your own bear or pick up a "naked" bear at the monthly meeting. Dress them any way you like. Patterns are also available on the Community Service page on the AKG web site.
