Sacred Stitches

Sacred Stitches

Our Diocesan Sacred Stitches group has sharing as its main goal. Sacred Stitches invites you to meet people from different churches in our very large Diocese several times a year at different locations where we share our ideas and have a time of fellowship. 

Each host church provides beverages and some snacks, while attendees bring a bag lunch, their ideas and knitting.

Recently, we have started a yarn exchange.  You can bring along any yarn that you might want to give away and take home some new-to-you yarn. 

Any questions? Suggestions? Contact Jeannie Zeller for more information.

Fall Gathering

 

Sacred Stitches will be hosted by St. Andrew's, Lewisburg on Saturday, Oct. 29. Please join us from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. for a wonderful day of friendship and learning. Our hosts will be explaining their knitting ministry and a tour of St. Andrew's will be provided for anyone interested. Please bring a bag lunch. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

As always, you are invited to add yarn to our yarn exchange table.

We hope to see lots of you for our Fall gathering as Lewisburg is centrally located to many parts of our Diocese!!
