Mac-Cro-Knit members fill ‘treasure bags’

Posted

In late August, members of the Mac-Cro-Knit Club formed as assembly line and filled 144 crocheted or knitted bags made by the members with donated travel size toiletries and other personal items that are especially purchased for this project. The “treasure” bags were delivered to the New Life Domestic Shelter in Goodyear.

The club annually fills and donates about 500 bags. Arlene Crow is in charge of this event.

The club has already gathered more than 350 toys for the annual Christmas donation project. Special bags in Christmas colors are being knitted or crocheted by members. The filled bags will be given to homeless families.

New members continue to join in the action, with club workshops continuing twice a week, 8-11:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Each workshop features a “Show and Tell” session so members can see completed projects and discuss the skills and patterns involved. “How to” lessons are available when requested. Workshops are in Room 3/Pueblo Room, Kuentz center.

The next business meeting is 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 13. President Janet Lennon will preside. Committee chairs will present progress reports. This is an opportunity for members to learn about the various club projects and events.

Call Lennon at 623-687-7397, visit knit.scwclubs.com or check out the club’s Facebook page: “Mac-Cro-Knit Sun City West.”

Annual dues are $5. Members must monitor a workshop once a year.
