I just received a note from Penny Sitler, Executive Director of the Helping Hands Foundation, about one of the most active Needle Arts Mentoring Programs in Beverly Hills MI. They were recently covered in an article posted on

It's a great example of how learning to knit goes far beyond the actual manual technique . . . This group has done chemo caps and scarves for Gilda's Place and scarves for the Special Olympics in the past. The Magic Square project talked about in the article is their latest endeavor, and they've got much of their school involved, not just the regulars in their program.

In case you didn't know, the Needle Arts Mentoring Program is a project of the Helping Hands Foundation, an organization managed by The National NeedleArts Association. This far reaching and active program teaches stitching to thousands of K - 12 grade students every year by providing start up materials and resources.
