St. Brigid - Share-a-Yarn


Meets the first Monday of the month at 7pm in the Saint Brigid Parish Center from September through June. Knitters and crocheters use their skills to make a variety of items for charity. These include:

  • Prayer shawls and blankets delivered personally to those in need- those who are ill, have lost a loved one or going through a difficult time.
  • Baby blankets given at baptisms
  • Infant caps to the nursery at UMMC
  • Mittens, hats and scarves for Mitten Tree and local schools and libraries
  • Chemo caps to cancer treatment centers
  • Scarves and hats to veterans at the Batavia VA
  • Teal and purple scarves to Restore in Batavia to bring attention to domestic violence and sexual abuse. A sampling of items also go to Batavia’s YWCA for their Domestic Violence Shelter.
  • Prayer squares, a pocket sized prayer shawl, made available to parishioners during Lent
  • Twiddlemuffs, a sensory fun muff for memory care residents
  • In October, a coat drive is held and handmade scarves attached before delivering to Community Action in Batavia.
