Carol V Moore I have been collecting from my community 12” x 12” squares crochet or knitted that will be put together for the DYFS blanket program. The only yarn used is acrylic for ease of care. I’ve collected quite a few squares and want to invite my community to help put the squares together for blankets.
Bonnie Jo Sprague I’ve taught two people at work how to crochet and am known as the resident HOOKER. It’s clear to people who see me crocheting during breaks and lunch that the craft is truly a thing of beauty to me...AND they all know who will put any unwanted yarn they may have to good use.

Nancy Partington My co-workers and I celebrate Yarn Day every day! So, on October 10th, we will be crocheting together at lunch time.

I also am working on things for various charities ... it’s become a passion!
