AROUND THE CORNER
The sometime newsletter of Cynthia’s Corner
Showing my age here
I remember (as a CHILD, you understand) standing in the yard in late December 1959, wondering what the coming decade would bring. Sixty years later, I’m looking at another new decade and wondering again. I can hardly wait to see what happens. One thing I’m sure of - we’ll try to keep you in stitches. We’re planning new yarns, new classes, new projects, and it’s exciting. Let the adventure begin!
MADE WITH LOVE GROUP aka
The Elm Street Hookers
These remarkable women have a great time, improve their knitting and crocheting skills, and complete wonderful projects for local agencies. In 2019 they made hundreds of items for Grayson Grand Central Station (GGC) and Abigail’s Arms. In addition, Cynthia’s Corner is a state provider for Knitted Knockers. Since November 2017, we have filled orders for over 700 breast cancer survivors in Texas.
But wait, there’s more. This group collects travel sized toiletries for GGC’s showers-for-the-homeless program. Every December there’s a cleaning products drive for our local sober living facilities. For all projects other than Knitted Knockers, the group uses donated yarn, which makes Cynthia’s Corner a home for unwanted yarn and supplies. Donated knitting needles and crochet hooks go to classes at such agencies as Abigail’s Arms and the Boys’ and Girls’ Club.
Want to join the group? They meet every Tuesday morning from 10 am to noon. You can work on a charity project or bring your own work and enjoy the fellowship. All levels of knitting and crocheting expertise are welcome.
It’s also great fun and camraderie. The last Tuesday of each month there is a luncheon to celebrate the month’s birthdays, and life in general.
