Our Local Newspaper and Crochet

Woman from Sedgwick

I have been rather excited about a couple of articles that have been in the paper the past few days and wanted to share them with all of you. First off, on Wednesday, our local newspaper reported on a woman that lives in one of the neighboring towns who crochets hats for soldiers. This lady is very generous to give of her time and talent.

Shelly in Newspaper

Then, on Thursday in the Business section of our local newspaper, this article about Shelly Stilger from Twist was in there. The article told about how Shelly was filling a need for a place to go to be with other creative people--whether they crochet, knit, or spin. Of course, I know I’ve said this before, but Shelly is a very generous person, and I think there are a lot of people who think the same thing.

I have found through talking to people about the crafts that they are involved in (whether they are knitters or crocheters), we are all generous people and love to give back to our community, and these are two very generous people that needed to be recognized, and I’m so glad that they were. Tell me about some of the generous people that you know.
