All year long we support Doernbecher Children's Hospital with handmade hats. Stop in to the shop to drop off your hat from infant to teen size and spread a little cheer to the patients at Doernbecker.
Hats aren't your thing? Try Knitted Knockers, the Welcome Blanket, or Hearts for Portland! Giving back is to the community through crafting is an important part of who BlackSheep is! Bring your crafted items to BlackSheep for collection. We will send them on to the right charity.
Do you have a charity you like to craft for, but it is not on our list? Contact Tina.
Join us September 2017 for National Spin-In-Public Day. Our group will meet at the Hillsboro Farmer's Market and share our love of spinning with the passerby from 10am-2pm.
