Knitters, crocheters, sewers, blanket tiers, and quilters of all skill levels and faith communities are welcome to attend. Projects can be made for personal use, church use, or for charity.
Charitable donations go to Mercy Hospital, Dean St. Mary Hospital, YWCA domestic abuse, Rock County Social Services, Rock Haven, and the VA Hospital in Madison.
