Knit & Crochet for Charity

There are others out there in the community who need our help keeping warm during the winter months.

  • Beanies/Hats
  • Knitted or Crocheted squares
  • Balls of wool or acrylic
Donations of these items will be much appreciated.

These items will be passed on to Jan Mac at the Retreat, for distribution.  If you are unable to attend our Retreat but would like to help out, the items can be sent to Jan at:
