Who are the St. John's Crafters?
It’s a group of people who enjoy creating beautiful hand-worked items be they knitted, crocheted or woven goods, and joining in fellowship while contributing to St. John’s and helping others in ministry.
Regardless of your level of expertise - beginner, intermediate or expert - bring your current knitting or crocheting projects and materials and join us for an evening of knitting, conversation, and coffee & cake.
As we knit and crochet, and share information and advice, we'll also discuss ways in which we can craft items for sale at fund-raisers such as the upcoming Weihnachtsmarkt (German Christmas Market) and make items that can be distributed to those in need such as blankets for the homeless, blankets and caps for those undergoing cancer treatments, and many other such projects. Bring along your ideas!
For those who are interested in joining this ministry but do not know how to knit... fear not! In January, we will offer a 4-week beginners course. We will cover the basics such as casting on & off, knit and purl stitches, reading a beginners pattern, what yarns work best on which projects, and so on.
