Holiday Cheer Gifts from the Craft Guild

Judi Barbour, Nancy Dresser and Carolyn Statler with Holiday Cheer Stockings

For several months, the Craft Guild has been busily sewing lap robes, making scarves, knitting hats and making shoulder warmers for  home bound persons in Nevada County.  Judi Barbour collects all of the donations and with information from the visiting nurses, makes sure that appropriate gifts go to those that need them most.   Because of the large outpouring of donations, everyone will be receiving a gift.

This year, the guild had a planning session and one big work party to work on gifts.  The lion's share of the work was done later in guild member's homes and in their spare time.  Nancy Dresser generously made enough holiday stockings so that every person on the nurse's list will get one this year.

If you would like to read more about this wonderful seasonal project, see the article published in the Union newspaper last year.

The Craft Guild members would like to wish all of our readers a wonderful, safe holiday season.
