Claremonter's Superstorm Sandy efforts continue
Thanks to the community, Phebie’s Needle Art has received more than 200 scarves, hats and knitted accessories for the store’s recent Yarn Relief campaign, sending victims of superstorm Sandy a gift of warmth.
All items were shipped to the east coast last week to provide warmth to those who continue to struggle in the wake of the storm. The Packing House yarn shop will continue to ship knitted donations to the relief efforts. Those interested in donating an item may stop by Phebie’s Needle Art, located on the second floor of the Claremont Packing House at 532 W. First St. For more information, visit www.phebies2.com or call 624-5250. The shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., through 8 p.m. on Wednesdays.
