We are a small group that meets every 4th Tuesday each month from 10am-2pm in the church library. There are church members, as well as non-church members involved in this ministry. We knit and crochet together and there are members that are willing to teach anyone that would like to learn.
Some of the many projects that we provide are baby hats to both Northern Dutchess Hospital and Vassar Hospital, Lap robes for local nursing homes, Prayer shawls for church members with serious or long term illnesses and Hats and scarves for the homeless shelter. We typically send 50-70 baby hats, 3 times a year to Northern Dutchess and 40-50 hats, once a year to Vassar. The lap robes are delivered in November each year to 4-5 different homes. The hats and scarfs are also delivered in November.
As you can tell, we are a very busy group and are always looking for new people to help this valuable ministry. If you love to knit, or crochet, come, bring a lunch, and join us, we would love to have you. If you have any questions, please contact Doris Leland.
