There are now 4 of us who get together. Every new hospice pt. receives a handmade (with love) crocheted or knitted lap robe. We also take on special sewing projects such as walker bags, foley bag covers, or any special need a client may need to make them more comfortable.
In addition we craft a special gift for our clients &/or their caregiver for major holidays .
Our group has an age range from 80's to 50's. We are a very fun, welcoming, affable group. We laugh a lot & just genuinely enjoy each other. Everyone is equal. What bands us together is our desire to help others in addition to our respect & love of each other. We would like to welcome you into our group for a meeting (or as we like to say "a get together") so that we may all help others in need. We invite your creativity for any kind of craft. Come join us! We're nice people!!!
