One way the Guild shares its talents is by knitting for various charities. Guild members are welcome, but not required, to knit for charity.
Each year, the Guild knits about 300 items for charity, using some yarn that has been donated to the Guild by organizations and individuals.
Guild members knit hats for premature babies; caps for chemotherapy patients; prayer shawls for those facing difficulties; socks for orphans; and scarves, hats and gloves for sailors. The Guild also knits and collects various items for Native Americans.
Knitting for charity is a great way to share your talent with those in need. However, Guild members are not required to knit for charity.
