The Franklin Woman’s Club and Pam MacKenzie, Courier News/Home News Tribune reporter and “In Stitches” blogger/columnist on, are collaborating to plan an event in honor of the World Wide Knit in Public Day. In 2017, this event was celebrated through 1125 events in 54 different countries!

Knitters and crocheters are invited to meet and create purple baby hats that will be donated to Prevent Child Abuse NJ as part of their Click for Babies Campaign.   

Attendees wishing to participate, are asked to bring lawn chairs if they wish to sit on the outdoor covered porch. Indoor seating is available as well. Others can help by donating purple yarn or money used to purchase more supplies to support the initiative.
