Each May, for the past 8 years we have held a Charity Knit & Crochet Retreat at St Francis Center for Renewal in Bethlehem.

This year- our 9th Annual Retreat Day will be held on Monday, May 13, 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 Toddler Vests and Hats to be donated. We will be taking sign ups beginning Monday, March 18.

Cost is $20.00- cash or checks written to St Francis Center for Renewal. Additional details coming soon.
