Knitting and Crocheting
   Fourth Tuesdays from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
   Room 4F in the Gratz Center

Join this active group of women who knit and crochet items for those in need (items such as hats and scarves for adults and children, children’s pajamas and clothes, baby booties and crib caps, lap robes, and more). The group is designed to accommodate individuals’ own schedules, allowing participants to drop in for as much or as little of each gathering as they’d like.

The group meets at Fourth Church for a time of fellowship, to drop off items they have completed, and to pick up yarn and material for new projects. Items are then donated to children and families in shelters, hospitals, and nursing homes.

For more information, please contact Anne Ellis (312.573.3369).
