West Side Crochet Group

The West Side Crochet Group meets on the second Thursday of each month at the Benbrook YMCA where they kindly let us use a room. All year we share patterns, enjoy company of fellow crocheters and make lapghans (lap sized blankets). But our November meeting is special because we bring the finished products and these are then distributed as Christmas presents to residents at local nursing homes. There were several tables full of the lapghans in November and I believe we accumulated well over a hundred to distribute. We also collected $12 from each member to donate to the Step Up for Kids campaign as a thank you to the YMCA for allowing us to use a room. If you live in or near Benbrook Texas and want to help, stop by the second Thursday of the month or if you have yarn you would like to donate, please bring that too.
Well done ladies, lots of beautiful blankets that are sure to be appreciated.
