Our Hands for Hope Pop Up Shop

by Alicia Fischer, Communications @ Our Hands For Hope

Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we set up shop at the CornerStone Sonoma along highway 121 in Sonoma, California. We were stationed at Potter Green & Co showing our knits in all their wonderful colors, displaying how to wear them, and telling the story of how  they are created and brought to you straight from Peru.

There was a great response to the event, and even made a second appearance the next day! Check out some photos around the beautiful CornerStone Sonoma and see how our knits blend in beautifully to complement the scenery.

Event: Spring Birthday

April showers bring May flowers and that is just what can happen for a late spring birthday.

Create table centerpieces from giant, yellow gerbera daisies and pinwheels suspended in red and white striped popcorn containers.

Add 1″ white stickers to red tablecloths for a fun polka dot effect.

Wrap all gifts is bold, and bright colorful paper.

Tie bold colored balloons to every chair.

Dress in your bright blue dress, accent with those to die for shoes and slip on your alpaca hand-knit sweater.

Now rest assured your gift, the one with the Cuddle Gram logo is going to be the perfect gift!
A snuggly, cuddly, hand knit alpaca throw, that will be a reminder of a big hug from you.
And just think, a child in a barrio tonight is staying warm too.

Every time a Cuddle Gram is sold, Our Hands For Hope, LLC will gift a warm cuddly blanket to a child in need on your behalf.
