Our Savior Lutheran Church
The Heart & Soul group meets once a month at Our Savior Lutheran Church, on Rt 52, in Fishkill, NY. We are an eclectic group of Christian women, using our handcraft to serve many throughout the Fishkill, Wappinger Falls and Poughkeepsie area, at large.
Everyone is welcomed to come whenever they wish for support on a pattern, or stuck with a stitch, or just for some social and spiritual companionship while crocheting for their cause. We meet the third Saturday of each month from 2:00 – 5:00PM.
The Little Hearts/Big Hearts Campaign will be one of many projects conducted throughout the 2018 year, crocheting or knitting hats for preemies and newborns, born the month of February. The purpose of the campaign is to promote awareness and the fight against congenital heart defects. The hats are distributed by the American Heart Association chapter to all newborns born in the month of February.
It is our goal to knit or crochet as many hats as possible throughout the year. I will collect them every three months at the targeted months of; March, June, September and November. All hats must be to me by the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The hats will be taken to the AHA Poughkeepsie office on Giving Tuesday/2018, the first Tuesday after Thanks Giving. The director of the program has asked for hats to be in her possession early, so she may sort them, wash them and prepare them for distribution.
We will supply skeins of red yarn for you to work with. Below are a couple of links for both crochet and knit hat patterns. Please call Our Savior Lutheran Church for more info. (845) 897-4423
