Eager Hands
"She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands...she opens her hands to the poor and extends her hands to the needy."
Proverbs 31 NIV

Eager Hands is a fellowship group for women who want to learn or improve their handwork skills and use those skills to help others. We meet monthly, September through February, on the 2nd Sunday afternoons from 3:00 to 5:00pm, at Christ the King Church. As a group we participate in several projects that are designed for any skill level, from novice to experienced knitters or crocheters. We would also welcome women from nearby churches or communities to join us! In some cases, yarn and other needlework supplies are free to participants. We also encourage donations of yarn, needles, or other supplies to be used for our projects. Projects include hats for the homeless, lap robes for hospice patients, chemo hats, and knit or crocheted squares to be made into blankets. Last year alone, we knit or crocheted over 250 hats that were given away at Christmas time to homeless folks—what a blessing!
