Eagles and Mittens

We are very pleased to announce that we are accepting donations for the Eagle’s Nest Stoney Family Shelter. Eagle’s Nest Shelter provides shelter and counselling, as well as food, clothing and childcare to women and children escaping domestic violence. Some of the items they are looking for are socks, pajamas, and toiletries. We are also taking donations of journals, and new art supplies, like crayons, pencil crayons etc. as being creative together as a family can help families bond and heal after traumatic events.

We had an amazing donation of FIFTY pairs of mittens from Ruth Smilie in October. They have been picked up to go to their new homes, and our poor little mitten tree is empty! We’d like to fill it up at least one more time before Christmas, to warm up some of Calgary’s cold hands, and will gratefully accept mittens to fill up our mitten tree. Thank you so much, everyone!


At The Loop, we like to get to know our customers personally. We wipe tears, share stories, celebrate birthdays, babies, weddings, and milestones! We're friends as well as yarn stashers, lovers, users, and researchers. We're more than a retail experience; we're a community.
