Beautiful work!

We are so grateful for everyone that participated with us at the Oklahoma State Fair this year.

We received a beautiful variety of knitted and crocheted scarves.

If you weren’t able to see the display at the fair, check out the photos below to get an idea of how it looked.

Thanks again! We’re already planning for next  year. Join us if you can!

Two More Weeks!

Have you been thinking about entering a scarf in the Oklahoma State Fair, but just aren’t sure? I totally understand -before this option to enter a scarf as a donation to Threads of Compassion my last fair experience had been as a kiddo in 4-H.

I was surprised at how fun it was to see my item on display at the fair! So, whether you want to go see it on display or are just willing to donate, we hope you’ll join us this year.

This could be a great opportunity to try out a new pattern or do one that you’re really familiar with, all are welcome and appreciated.

There’s still time to register, and even more time to complete your scarf.

Registration deadline: 5pm August 15th.

Scarf deadline:  September 9th. (If you want us to deliver them we’ll need them by September 7th)

Join us at the 2018 OK State Fair

We’re excited to be included again in the Oklahoma State Fair Creative Arts Competition!  This is the 3rd year we’ve been included as one of the charity competitions.

You can enter the fair and make a donation to Threads of Compassion OKC at the same time! There are even ribbons for the top 10 in each category.

There’s no cost to you to enter, and we’ll even deliver the scarf for you if you’d like. If you’d like us to deliver your scarf, go ahead and enter online and then contact us to make arrangements.

The registration is all online this year. It’s quick and easy to do. The division for Threads of Compassion is 3574.

Registration is open now until 5pm on August 15th.

Supporting Survivors

The Fearless K is this coming weekend and you can participate!

There’s still time to register and help support the awesome services the YWCA OKC provides.

This event has previously been called the 5 Minute 5 K. This year it has a new name, and a few new options.  There’s the Kiddie K, a 3K fun run/walk,  a 5K run, a 5 K with obstacle course, and a no K option – Snooze for SSAM (sexual assault awareness month).

So, whether you want to run or walk, or just support the cause, we hope you’ll join our team!
