A HUGE thank you to our Elkhorn Hills Knit & Sew Group. This group of fantastic women are generous, loving ladies who work well together and enjoy fellowship. We had a productive 2017 and we welcome new members. All are welcome!
We meet the 3rd Friday of the month in the Conference Room at 9:30 a.m.
In 2017, the ladies shared their talents and love for others by the following:
- Made and furnished 98 school kits and 42 Layette Kits to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee of Relief)
- Made 80 blankets and knitted 45 hats and presented them to Open Door Mission, Lydia House, Sienna Francis House, Nebraska Families Collaborative, and YES (Youth Emergency Services).
- Made and provided Baby Layettes to YES and COPE (Christian Outreach Program of Elkhorn)
In November, sleepers, blankets, slacks and other items were sewn by our members, along with 35 pairs of baby socks.
These projects will continue; however, the ladies are also partnering with Sewing for Babies through St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Omaha. They receive fabric and materials from St. Matthew’s and Elkhorn Hills Knit & Sew group will sew and deliver the completed items to St. Matthew’s for distribution.
If you love to knit or sew, we “Welcome You” to join our small group.
