Use your crocheting skills to do a good deed. Join the Emanuel Congregation Stitching Ladies on Tuesdays from 9:15 – 12:30 at 5959 N Sheridan Rd, Chicago, IL. Our volunteers are all religions and ages. What they have in common is a willingness to help others. Using mostly donated yarn, we make blankets, caps, booties, and sweaters for preemies and infants; hats, scarves, mittens and clothing for children and adults; and ponchos, shawls, and lap afghans for adults. We donate these items locally to hospitals and social services agencies for direct distribution to their patients and clients. We welcome new volunteers as well as contributions of yarn (either full or partial skeins) and crocheted items. For more information, contact Sandy Pakin [email protected].
