Once again the Isanti Stitch & Chat group donated hand-made items to the Isanti County Christmas Project.
This year they made crocheted and knitted baby afghans, as well as hats, mittens and scarves. Over the years, the group has donated over 800 items, 95 this year alone. They are already planning projects to make for 2020.
The Stitch & Chat group, lead by Susi McCune, has been meeting for nearly 40 years. Members knit, crochet, embroider, needlepoint, and do other needlework, learning tips from each other and sharing favorite patterns. Susi started the weekly classes many years ago when she owned the Town Yarn Shoppe in Isanti and still enjoys and admires the variety of amazing projects her students create.
Stitch & Chat classes ($3 each) are held at the SOS Classroom in Isanti. Susi serves coffee, tea, and chocolates along with stitching advice and instructions. New members are welcome any time. Contact Susi to reserve a spot and get directions: 763-444-4585 or susi@MessDistress.com.
