Kris Krafters sew for charity

Saturday, November 6, 2021, 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Kris Krafters at Willowbrook United Methodist Church have been sewing for charity for many years. This group crochets, knits, quilts and crafts at home and at the church two days a month. They have made blankets, hats, aprons, adult bibs, lap quilts, layettes, and children's clothing for various charities around the valley. They occasionally make something they choose to raffle and use funds received to purchase supplies for new projects or to donate to mission projects. The pandemic did not slow them down. They quickly started making masks to donate to hospitals, rehab facilities, people in the community and reservations. And they continued making other items for donation to the community. Barb Sepiol was one of many others in the group who worked on a project at home during the Covid-19 Quarantine. She followed directions to crochet an intricate work of art. The pattern has an array of colorful flowers, fruit and foliage. Originally designed to be a British Fruit Garden, Barb adapted the pattern to a Southwestern color scheme by using acrylic yarn she had at home. The 64" x 64" piece has hollyhocks, chrysanthemums, forget-me-nots and other intricately made flowers set in a garden with delicate borders. The pattern was designed by noted crochet expert Jane Crowfoot. It can be accessed for free on the Stylecraft-UK website. After ten months of work on her Fruit Garden Blanket, she donated it to the group. Her project will be raffled at the Willowbrook United Methodist Church Holidaze Craft Faire on November 5-6, 2021. The blanket will be on display at the church before the Craft Faire. We thank her for this generous gift of time and talent to benefit the Missions and Outreach Program. Kris Krafters meet in the church fellowship hall the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month. Willowbrook is located at 19390 N. 99th Ave., Sun City AZ 85351. Pictured: Rev. Gary Kennedy admires the Fruit Garden Blanket crocheted by Barb Sepiol.
