Trinity Promotes Knitting Outreach

Trinity Episcopal Church is initiating a community outreach program for those who would like to learn more about knitting or crocheting for worthwhile causes and to have a quiet time and place to work in a group setting on individual projects. There will be no group projects.

The informal sessions will take place at the Trinity Parish Hall on the first and third Mondays of each month at 1 p.m., beginning June 15. Everyone interested in knitting or crocheting for those in need is welcome, said Kitty Hannabass, one of the organizers.

Formal instruction will not be provided, but there will be lots of shared information and assistance among participants, said Mrs. Hannabass.

Information will be available on how to access various needlework patterns for programs such as Afghans for Afghans through the American Friends Service Committee, chemotherapy caps for cancer patients, prayer shawls, mittens, hats, baby blankets, items for the homeless, AIDS sufferers, the Soweto Knit-A-Square project for children, and many others. Internet resource information sheets will be available, as well as information on how to mail finished projects.
