Thank you to all who knit & crochet items year round for “Our Lucille Project“.

Close to 100 items (hats, scarves, & cowls) were donated to the Coachmen Family Shelter this Winter (which is home to 150 families). They were grateful for the donation. 40 were also donated to the Samaritan shelter for women.

Keep stitching ladies, your work is much needed and appreciated.

Donations of yarn by members and others in our community are a tremendous help for all of our charity projects.

Donations!!!

Ladies, it is because of all of your hard work and generosity, participating in all of our charity knitting & crocheting that others recognize and want to reward us with yarn donations, etc. More yarn = more items for charity!!

We get yarn donations from both members and other women in our community – we are grateful for every skein!!image

Yesterday we received what must have been in excess of 100 skeins of yarn – Alpaca galore!! 💕
