Fountain Hills Group

Twice a month a wonderful group of ladies comes and hangs out with us here at Knit Happens.  They are known to us as "The Fountain Hills Group".  An energetic group of knitters and crocheters that number anywhere from 10 to 20 or more depending on the time of year.  These great ladies knit mostly for charities such as Sojourner House and the Linus Project.  Every time they come to the store they bring with them all their completed work and we have a great show and tell session.  

On behalf of those of us at Knit Happens that have come to love these generous and kind women, we would like to thank these ladies for their community support and their efforts in making the world a warmer place.  You've certainly warmed our hearts!

If you would like to join these women they are always welcoming to new people (whether from Fountain Hills or not) - so give us a call and we will let you know the next time they are here in the store.
