Our group meets every Wednesday evening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Ela Township Community Center at 380 Surryse Rd., in Lake Zurich, to knit, crochet, chat and have fun!

Our community of crafters has been meeting for 10 years. In that time we’ve lovingly made well over 10,000 handmade blankets, hats, scarves, baby items and much more to donate to Kids’ Korner at the Lake County Court House along with area churches, homeless and domestice violence shelters, veterans, schools, hospitals, food pantries, and other nonprofit organizations and causes.

Newcomers are always welcome. If you don’t know how to knit or crochet but would like to learn, we have plenty of friendly volunteers who can teach you. Join us and help contribute to area residents in need. You’ll be so glad you did!

Got extra yarn? We’d love for you to donate it to our charity projects!

EVERY WEDNESDAY AT COMMUNITY CENTER
BEGINNERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME
VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME TO HELP THE COMMUNITY 

Ela Charity Knit & Crochet is 10 years and still going strong!
