Yarn Barn Chicks

The "Yarn Barn Chicks" are a group of caring and generous women who wish to build community among themselves and their church. At the same time, they want to donate their talents and skills to helping the sick, homeless, needy and poor.

 

Members of the Yarn Barn meet each Thursday morning from 10:00 AM to Noon in the Conference Room of the Religious Education Building. They bring their crochet and knitting needles, yarn and items on which they have been working at home - afghans, knit hats, clothing for newborns, etc. During the meeting the ladies work on their crafts, help each other improve their skills, laugh, tell stories, enjoy coffee, tea and treats, and share with each other about God's work in their lives.

 

Once a craft item is completed, it is donated to people in need. Some items are given to cancer patients in local hospitals and care facilities. Others are donated to Merchant Marine charities in the Los Angeles- Long Beach harbor area. Still other items are given to people in convalescent homes, or to the homeless and underprivileged.

 

Once each month, members of the Yarn Barn conclude their meeting by enjoying a lunch together at a local restaurant, where the work of "community building" continues.

 

If you would like to participate in knitting or crocheting items for the needy, or if you want to donate yarn to help this ministry, call: Mary Caplan at (562) 597-3102 or bring your donation to the Religious Education office.
