Charity Knit Crochet & Quilters

Our community of crafters has been meeting for 10 years. In that time we’ve lovingly made well over 12,000 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 domestic 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! We take donations!  If you have extra yarn please contact our office, we will gladly take if off your hands and put it to good use on one of our charity projects!

Please check back, there are more groups to come!  We would love your feedback, if you have any suggestions of programs and groups you would like to see offered by the Health & Wellness department please email saram@elatownship.org.  Thank you.
