The Weekly Stitch

Hello all,
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you! I pray that each of you have a wonderful holiday filled with friends, family, and lots of turkey!

I am so thankful for each of you and what you mean to our group - because of your love of knitting, crocheting and/or sewing, we are able to share hope, comfort and warmth with cancer patients and their families. Thank you for your dedication to our group.

Because it is the week of Thanksgiving, we will not be meeting this week. Our meetings will resume as usual on November 29th.

On November 29th, we will have a field trip to the yarn shop, Fiber Circle, in Farmersville. Please arrive at the church by 9:45 so we can depart before ten. We will carpool out there for a special time of shopping.  Diane, the shop owner, will also have a craft available for us to enjoy. I'm so excited about this - hope you can join us. (Thanks to Lynda Moore for organizing this for us!)

And, last but not least, you may recall I mentioned in my email last week about a surprise to be revealed at our meetings last week. In case you weren't there, be sure to check out our blog at for details about the big announcement!

God bless each of you!


Creative Ways of Donating

Sherri Jurak just turned 50 and wanted to celebrate the exciting time with friends that she loves.  Sherri also wanted to celebrate this time by not only focusing on her but a group she is passionate for: Yarns of Hope.  With a ministry dear to her heart, Sherri has contributed her time, materials, projects and actively promotes the group by adding the Yarns of Hope website as part of her signature in e-mails.  Sherri wanted to continue to give to the group by requesting yarn and items be donated in lieu of gifts.  An outpouring of yarn-related gifts arrived: 1 Crochet hook, 26 skeins of yarn, a $30 gift certificate to the Woolie Ewe and $345 to be used for purchasing more yarn and related materials!

Thank you, Sherri for your wonderful donation to Yarns of Hope!  We hope you have a wonderful time celebrating and embracing being 50!
