Hi all!

Hi everyone :)  I am a 27 year old woman, currently live in Russellville and was thrilled to find a community of Central Arkansas knitters and crocheters!  I honestly don't know a single person who crochets around here besides me.   I have only recently picked up the hobby and fell in love with it.  So far I have made 5 afghans and one scarf.  I'm currently working on a rather large afghan for my 6'3" husband.  I was wondering if anyone knows of any charities here in Arkansas that could use crochet blankets and such.  I have been looking online and found several in other states, but none around here.  Would love to hear back!  Thanks!

Charities in Arkansas
I live in Clarksville and have had the same problem about what to do with all the afghans I've made. So, I called one of our local nursing homes and for the past 2 years I have donated the afghans I've made through out the year to them at Christmas time. They were so excited to get them. Some of their residents have no family to speak of and were so happy to have a special gift for them.
So, you might check with one of your local nursing homes.

Russellville Knit/Crochet Group 2008
There is a new Knit/Crochet club in Russellville that meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month from 2-4pm at the original C.J.'s Burgers on Knoxville near the Fairgrounds. There are NO fees, just bring your own project and join in the fun! We do encourage knitting or crocheting for charity, so if you want to bring in your projects, please do! The club is called "Threads Of Hope".
Hope to see you there!

I would like to donate yarn for the baby caps & booties, but don't know how to get it to you. We live in N Little Rock. My e-mail address is dweeks.5@netzero.net. Can you respond to this note?
Kind Regards
