Crafting Blessings first meeting was a success! 15 eager crafters joined together to learn how to loom knit baby hats. Our January 2019 project, the first ever for Crafting Blessings, is loom knitting baby hats to be donated to Children’s Health in Dallas, TX. Most were nervous about learning a new skill and skeptical about their ability to learn and complete our first project. As the teacher, I felt like I was the leader of the Skeptics Anonymous group from the Ebates commercial. But an hour or so later, our new loomers were looming away! Among the 15 crafters, we had 5 tween/teen youngsters. It absolutely melts my heart to see young ladies (or gentlemen) with hearts for service AND learning new skills. We have another meeting later in the month, where more crafters will be learning how to loom knit. We also have crafters that can’t make it to the meetings but are learning from my videos, located in the tutorials tab. I can’t wait to see the finished blessings at the end of the month.
Want to help out your local children’s hospital? First, give them a call and see what items they accept since each hospital has different requirements. Then start with this super simple video tutorial and start loom knitting away!
