Saturday Crafters, a monthly craft group organized by Bernardsville Public Library, recently received a letter from the Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center in Morristown thanking the group for its donation of 117 washcloth and soap sets. Many of the cloths were knitted or crocheted by participating Crafters, who purchased the soaps and wrapped the parcels in colorful ribbons. Bernardsville Library staff member Evelyn Fischel, who founded Saturday Crafters, delivered the items to the Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center where they will be made available to families and individuals in need.
Saturday Crafters welcomes new members who like to practice handwork such as crochet, knitting, rug hooking, cross stitch, needlepoint and jewelry arts. Please bring a project with you to the next meeting on Saturday, March 16th, at 3 p.m. in the Community Room and enjoy an afternoon of conversation and crafting. Participation in community outreach projects (such as the washcloth sets) is purely voluntary.
