That their hearts might be comforted,
being knit together in love,
The group began as a knitting group in September 2009. The hope was to bring knitting wannabes and seasoned knitters together for a purpose 'keeping heads warm in Jesus' name'. The group has expanded to include other crafts such as crocheting. Since its beginning, over 575 hats have been made and many have been given away to children and adults in need.We are beginning a "Knit for Kids" project that includes hats, baby blankets and sweaters. These are then shipped to World Vision for distribution.We do make donations to cover shipping costs. With the addition of the bible verse "That their hearts be comforted, being knit together in love" from Colossians 2:2 printed on a small paper placed in the hats, the group strives to keep heads warm while reminding the wearer of the love that Jesus has for them through this handmade gift.
Barbara Golec and Charlotte Heaton have passionately and patiently brought together ladies of all ages with the hope of sharing a purpose and promoting fellowship. The ladies meet faithfully nearly every Monday evening.
