Explore your artistic side! Knit or crochet cozy scarves, blankets and hats for a variety of community service projects. This non-instructional gathering of volunteers meets twice a month. All skill levels welcome.

Our large group formed over twenty years ago with only three members. Over the years, the group has donated thousands of handmade items for organizations in and around Howard County, MD. In addition to local requests, in 2019, the group began making donations to nation-wide calls for handmade items. This group provides volunteers with a creative outlet, an opportunity for socialization, and a sense of contributing to their community. They are an extremely talented group that enjoys sharing new patterns, needlework advice, and giving back!



Groups meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.
Time: 1-3pm
