Mission Outreach Craft Class at Bedford Baptist Church
Meeting every Tuesday from 10:00 am to 12:00 am this happy and busy a group of knitters and crocheters support Adele’s Legacy by providing sweaters and hats every year. They get their yarn from The “Holy” Yarn Rollers, as well as from local donations. They also make chemo hats for cancer centers, and prayer shawls, as well as knit for themselves! This community craft group is made up of women who just love to knit and crochet and they are happy to teach newcomers! Adele’s Legacy is very close to their hearts, “We love children!”
Southwest Virginia Knitting Guild
Based in Rocky Mount VA, The SWVA Knitting Guild is a local affiliate of The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA). Through fellowship and sharing, the SWVA Knitting Guild strives to expand our member’s knowledge and encourage charity work in an environment that welcomes all, regardless of skill level. The guild meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Franklin County Library in downtown Rocky Mount for classes, snacks, knitting and fun. Many of the members work on hats and scarves for Adele’s legacy both at home and at the monthly meetings.
For more information on the guild please contact the current president, Pam Skilton, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wednesday Knit Nuts
The Knit Nuts is a group of less than ten women who meet in a different home every week to knit and crochet for about 5 hours. They are very active in providing hats, sweaters, and scarves and often help distribute the knitwear as well.
