It’s Time for Our Annual Retreat


Each May, for the past 7 years we have held a Charity Knit & Crochet Retreat at St Francis Center for Renewal in Bethlehem. 

This year- our 8th Annual Retreat Day will be held on Monday, May 14, from 10am-3pm.
The St. Francis Center for Renewal will be hosting again. 
We will have a morning of knitting, crocheting, learning, and chatting followed by a wonderful lunch and an afternoon of knitting with reflection.  The Knitter’s Edge will provide yarn and patterns both for knitters and crocheters. You will have the opportunity to learn some new skills (or brush up on those you already know).  This year we will be knitting and crocheting socks and chemo hats to be donated.  
CLICK HERE for the full Flyer on this great event. 
Cost is $20 to be collected in cash or check form at The Knitter’s Edge. SIGN UP NOW!
Womens Socks knit in supersoft Jeannee cotton/acrylic blend will be loved by those lucky enough to receive a pair.  Clean dry socks are the most requested items in homeless shelters.  
Both knit and crochet patterns will be available.
For those who still have a fear of socks- we will have knit & crochet chemocap patterns available.  Unfortunately these are still very much needed.
