25 000 Tuques Knitting Workshop

The McCord Museum is participating in the 25 000 Tuques initiative. The idea is to knit 25 000 tuques that will be given as welcome gifts to Syrian refugees, with a small, personalized welcome message slipped inside.

How to participate?

  • Knit a cozy tuque as pretty as one you would give to a friend
  • Pin a welcome message to the inside
  • Place it in the box available at the Museum’s admissions desk

Knitting Workshop at the Museum:
February 12 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., with the members of the Volunteer Guide Association, in the Atrium of the Museum.

You don’t knit, but you still want to help?
Drop off balls of yarn at the Museum, and we’ll knit it for you!

25 000 Tuques was begun by Danielle Létourneau, author and actress, and a group of kitting-enthusiast friends a few weeks ago on the famous social media platform Facebook. To learn more about 25 000 Tuques, visit the Facebook page or the Web site.
