The “Happy Knitters” are a group of dedicated women who knit and crochet prayer shawls to be given to patients at the Levine and Dickson Hospice House in Huntersville, NC. Shawls are also given to ill members of Hopewell and, upon request, to families and close friends of Hopewell members. This ministry has been very active ever since it was organized in February, 2009.
Anyone who knits or crochets is invited to join the “Happy Knitters.” Monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from September through May beginning at 1 p.m. in the Jeff Lowrance Room (A-12) of the Administrative Building. Participants are also welcome to work on shawls at home if you are unable to attend the meetings.
Donations of yarn (or money to purchase yarn with) are always welcome from anyone who does not knit or crochet, but would like to help with this unique ministry. For more information about the “Happy Knitters,” please contact Bonnie Burgess.
