Crocheting for Charity
There was a good turnout to our last meeting. We decided that for our Charity Crochet sessions, we’ll be crocheting 7×9 inch rectangles to make blankets, baby blankets, and lapghans for area charities which are in need of such items.
The concept for this comes from the Warm Up America Foundation, a place for information about making items to give to your own community. They have some very simple patterns for making the rectangles, as well as ideas for putting them all together and promoting the group.
Our meetings that take place on the third Sunday of each month will be set aside to work on these blankets. Everyone is encouraged to make rectangles, not just at the meetings, but also when they have time to spare.
If you would like to be part of this effort, please join us this Sunday, May 18, at the Topeka Shawnee County Library. You may also make rectangles at anytime between meetings and bring them with you, or mail rectangles to us if you can’t make the meetings. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your intent & a response will be sent with a mailing address and other information that would be pertinent to the circumstance.
