New Group Forming in Partnership with our Victor Methodist and Lutheran friends in Christ!

Victor Stitch-n-Chat 

Starting Wednesday, September 21, 1-2:30 PM

All handcrafters are invited to join us for 90 minutes of stitching and chatting!  We meet on the third Wednesday of every month from 1-2:30 PM at First Presbyterian Church in Victor.

Bring your current project (knitting, crocheting, tatting, embroidery, paper crafting, etc.), work on a prayer (comfort) shawl or start a square for Blessings ‘n Blankets!  All skill levels are welcome.  Want to learn to knit or crochet?  We can help!  Contact Brenda Dean at brenda.14450@gmail.com for more information.

***********************************************************************

We’re making 10” x 10” squares to join together to make blankets. The blankets will be donated to one or more community organizations (TBD) that may have a need. 

Use worsted weight (#4) washable yarn and weave in all ends. The finished square should be 10 inches by 10 inches and dropped off/sent to First Presbyterian Church in Victor, 70 E Main St, Victor, NY  14564.

In a few months we will begin joining squares together into blankets. Email, text or call Brenda Dean if you wish to be added to the list for our joining parties. , brenda.14450@gmail.com

Wondering what the finished blankets might look like? Here are some that were made by a church in Atlanta! There are over 2000 squares that have been sewn into 55 blankets.

Join “Blessings ‘n Blankets” on Facebook where you can upload pictures of the squares you’ve created or share additional patterns. Here’s a quick and easy way to join.

If you’re not on Facebook, I’ve included links below to patterns I’ve found – or use any pattern you like!
