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 Hometownlife.com.
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.
