We meet each first and fourth Thursday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Epworth Chapel … but wait! You don’t even have to come to the meetings! You can make things and turn them in without ever attending a meeting … though we ARE a lot of fun!
We make items for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) , Asbury Heights, Nyadire, the Zimbabwe Hospital, the Home of Hope Orphanage, and several other organizations. Items are tagged with the maker’s name, the place they want it to go, and the church address.
We learn from each other, share patterns, discover new tools, meet new friends and generally have a great time as we do God’s work. Come and let you hands and hearts bless others!
