The Stitch and Prayer Group was founded in 2009 as a knitting, sewing and crochet group that is committed to doing all of its work for those in need. Currently we have 35 to 40 active members and are open to crafters of all faiths, skill levels, and levels of commitment.
We ask our crafters to work on what they love to do; there are no assigned projects. Each item is prayed over requesting God’s blessing on the crafter and the recipient. Each month we sort through the finished projects and distribute them to local non-profits.
Stitch and Prayer designs and creates dozens of items to meet different community needs.
We distribute on average over 2,000 items each year to hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, shelters, community centers and schools. We also provide prayer shawls, lap and wheelchair blankets, to the sick and home bound.
