Yarn ExtravaganzaAre you a knitter, crocheter or loomer? Do you have a yarn stash in your closet that is gathering dust and can be used or donated for the big event? Do you want to be a part of something AMAZING for a GREAT cause in our community?

Well, this is your chance! Contact us at the e-mail address below and we will give you information about how you can “Color Oconomowoc” to help raise funds for the Lake Area Free Clinic. We need to complete our project by August 1st so we need your help ASAP!

Just basic knitting or crocheting skills are required, so any level – even someone who has never knitted/crocheted before—can participate. Gather as a group or do as a single. Ben Franklin will also be helping us out with some discounts for this event on selected yarn.

If you do not want to knit/crochet but have yarn to donate, contact us as well. We are looking for any color/size yarn. There will be donation baskets located at Roots Café in downtown Oconomowoc as well as Ben Franklin Crafts. For more information contact and someone will get right back to you.

But wait—there’s more! If you do not knit or crochet and do not have yarn to donate, we are asking for sponsors to help “Color Oconomowoc”. You can sponsor a tree, bench or other item in the downtown Oconomowoc area. Your name, business name, loved one’s name, etc. will be tagged on the sponsored item. All proceeds are tax deductible and will go directly to support all the wonderful care provided to the Lake Country area by the Lake Area Free Clinic. If you’d like to be a sponsor, please contact for details. Sponsorships are available starting at $50. These are great birthday /anniversary gifts!
