Knit, Crochet & Sew Good Works Ministry
Who We Are
We are a group of parishioners that meet every Wednesday from 1-4 pm in Father Shea Hall to sew, knit,crochet and craft items for charity. Since the year 2001 we have made an average of 1,000 items a year of warmth and comfort for those in need. They include fleece hats and scarves, flannel quilts, wool vests, pajamas, slacks, skirts, shawls, short sets, and a variety of the most beautifully knitted and crocheted afghans, and hat/mittens/scarf sets, booties, slippers, sweaters, skirts and rugs for babies to adults. These items have found their way to local shelters and as far away as Afghanistan. Whenever we hear of those in need we send items out. Our skills range from very basic to very good, and there is so much we learn from one another!
What We Do
Each workshop is filled with women who share their talents, spending time with one another while doing good works. Please be sure to drop by from 1-4pm or come early and stay late! Even if you have little or no sewing or crafting experience we always need cutters, sorters, pressers, (and someone to put on the coffee), etc. You can call the numbers below for further information.
What to Bring
Bring your knitting needles and crochet hooks and take a look in your stash for any items on our wish list you may no longer need for your own projects. Note that we have twelve portable sewing machines and two overlock serger machines available for use on a first-come first-serve basis. We have an abundance of yarn, fabrics and notions needed for future projects, but we are always in need of the following items: Polar Fleece, Flannel, Quilt Batting, Cotton or Cotton blend Fabric, Yarn (partial skeins OK, but full skeins are better).
Who To Contact

We promise you a rewarding, fun-filled few hours! There are always refreshments available. We have a potluck luncheon party twice a year, in December and in June.
So won’t you join us and do God’s work one stitch at a time?
