I’ll probably update after the second meeting, but I think the group is officially started. 8 years ago
It went well. There were four of us there (well, 1 was crochetting, but I guess that counts), including one woman who has never knit before.
The next meeting is set for two weeks from today. I guess I can check this one off my list now. 8 years ago
I’m so excited. We’re going to meet at P.’s house Tuesday evening, bring our WIPs, and see about setting up a schedule.
I’ve got to contact a couple of local craft stores before then, and find out whether/what they would be willing to contribute to get us off the ground. 8 years ago
OK – I’ve heard back from four other women who want to do this. I suppose the next step is to contact the Pastor and set up a time and place for our first meeting.
I also want to get contact information for the charities we’ve chosen together… Shouldn’t be too hard. 8 years ago
The women at the church like the idea. Some of them are already giving to the local NICU or project Linus.
At the same time, two members of the Church have just announced that they have been running a halfway house for alcoholic men. This is the only shelter for men in the county. Many of these men come with only the clothes on their back.
So there are a number of places for donated goods to go.
Now I just have to get agreement on a place and time to meet.
