Introducing "Binky Blocks" - join us!

Introducing “Binky Blocks” for Central Ohio Binky Patrol!! There will be three groups going for each two month period – knitting, crochet and quilt blocks. We will be making blocks according to specific color themes for two months at a time throughout the year as listed below. You can use a combination of the colors or just one of them. Also, feel free to add any neutral colors.

June 1 – July 31 – red/white/blue
Aug 1 – Sept 30 – bright colors
Oct 1 – Nov 30 – orange/black
Dec 1 – Jan 31 – red/green
Feb 1 – March 31 - blue/yellow
April 1 – May 31 – pastel colors

For quilting, the blocks need to be 6.5 inches and can be made using any pattern or technique. Quilting blocks need to be made from 100% cotton fabric.

For knitting & crochet, the blocks need to be 6 inches and can be made using any pattern as well. Knitting & crochet blocks need to be made from worsted weight, machine washable/dryable yarn.

All blocks sent to: Lisa Woodruff
Central Ohio Binky Patrol
640 Evans Street
Newark, Ohio 43055

For each block that is received by the last day of the second month, your name will be put into the pot. I will then draw a winner for each of the three groups (knitting/crochet/quilting). The winner will receive a surprise from me as a thank you. If you are able, it would be helpful if you could send $1.00 with your blocks to assist in the shipping of the prizes. If you aren’t able it is alright, but it would be appreciated!

Once all the blocks are received, I will be combining them into binkies to donate to our local foster children. I think this will be a fun way to start accumulating blocks and building binkies.

All people interested in participating can PM me directly with your name and estimated number of blocks you’ll be sending. You need to sign up for each two month time period separately. Don’t worry too much over the amount of blocks you estimate sending. It’s alright if you don’t send that many or if you send more. I just would like a ballpark figure and this is supposed to be fun!

I would love to send some knit and crochet red/white/blue squares.
I’ll try to send you at least 10.

Awesome! I’ll send you a PM for more information.

I would like to advance my crocheting skills and this would be a perfect opportunity. Six inch squares would make a nice practice piece. Sign me up for half a dozen.

Awesome Katy, I’ll send you a PM for more information!

Hello all, I just joined tonight. I’m new to knitting and crocheting, and would LOVE to find a knitting and crocheting group, who teaches people how to knit and crochet. I moved to the Nashport, Ohio area 12 years ago, but I’m originally from Hebron, and lived in Newark and Heath before moving here. Can anyone please provide me with some information regarding knitting and crocheting groups.

Thank you so much :slight_smile:
