Knitting for people in need with donated yarn, patterns and tools, volunteers work in the comfort of their home or, when they can, gather at St. Paul’s from 10:00am-12:00pm on Saturday mornings from September through June for a time of fellowship and to receive knitting advice if they are new to the skill. Squares are made into blankets, and hats, mitts, scarves and other requested items are distributed to various charities including The Fellowship Center at St. Paul's, My Sister's Place, The Salvation Army Center of Hope, The John Howard Society, The Women's Community House and Knitted Knockers of Canada.
