In January, 2003, I helped organize a group of knitters and crocheters who meet at a local Culver's restaurant every week. The group has grown from 4 people at the first meeting to a weekly attendance of 40-50 women. The purpose is to get together to socialize, get help with projects and knit for charity. To date, we have donated over 11,500 items to local charities and some wonderful friendships have been made. To show our appreciation to Culver's owner, one of our members crocheted a banner to hang in the store. (The owner had requested this and offered to pay for it, but we gave it to him instead.) Not only does he give us a place to meet, but he gives us free beverages each week and custard once a month! Thanks, Jim!
Me, Pat Pope (who made the hanging) and Jim (owner of Culver's)
