Emanuel Stitching Ladies

During World War II, the Emanuel Congregation Stitching Ladies (formerly known as the Sewing Ladies) sewed for the Red Cross. Today, they knit, crochet, and sew such items as baby blankets, lapghans, sweaters, hats, scarves, mittens, and shawls. These items are donated to local hospitals and social service agencies, among them St. Joseph’s Hospital Jesse Brown VA Hospital, Northwestern Hospital Women's Cancer Center, Care for Real, The Ark, and other social service agencies for their clients. We encourage knitters and crocheters to join us on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm at Emanuel Congregation. We supply the yarn; you supply the working hands!
