Tree of Life Project: Seaming...

Tree of Life Square

One of many beautiful squares donated to the Tree of Life Afghan Project


In the aftermath of the horrors at Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill, many of you are wondering how you can help. We have been collecting completed squares to assemble into an afghan (or 2, or 20) to give to the Tree of Life Synagogue. If you are in the area, and are interested in helping us seam Afghans for the Tree of Life synagogue, we are hosting 3 dates at YBD to seam blankets.


Friday January 18th 6-8pm

Friday January 25th 6-8pm

Saturday January 26th 10-1pm


Each event will have 10 spots to pre-register for. If you would like to pre-register, email or call us to sign up.

For more information, visit our Ravelry group under the forum Tree of Life.


If you are not able to join us on these dates, but still would like to help, we will have blanket packets available to take home for seaming. Starting January 11th, stop by YBD and “check out” a blanket packet to take home and seam. They will be “due” back by February 1st at YBD. A map of the blanket set up will be provided with each kit. We cannot believe the outpouring of love and support from this project! Our back room is overflowing with squares from all over the world, and we couldn’t be happier about it! Thank you to everyone who has participated at some level, we appreciate all of you!
