Prayer shawl Knitting

This group started five years ago in a local storefront. We didn't want to meet in a church because we wanted everyone to come regardless of their faith. When the store closed we moved to our local government center. Then several ladies from our local senior housing wanted to come. They don't drive so we meet in their community room. We have become friends and a support to each other. We depend on donated yarn to knit prayer shawls. Sometimes there is donated yarn in a small quantity and we make scarves and hats for elementary school children and give them to the school nurse for distribution. What donated yarn we cannot use goes to a local woman whose daughter flies to South Africa and she takes the yarn to senior housing in Cape Town where the ladies knit toys and hats for Aids orphans. So our little group effects many people. I am the woman who delivers the prayer shawls and both giver and receiver are blessed. I also started this group. We certainly welcome donations of
Lion Brand yarn. Thank you for this opportunity.
