Stitch’n Time

Stitch’n Time is a knitting group, organized as part of our tikkun olam activities, at which individuals knit or crochet items for various organizations in need.

Completed items are donated to several organizations and programs, including Beth Israel Hospital, the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services and Temple Emanu-El’s Sunday Lunch Program. Our volunteers currently are knitting (or crocheting) rectangles for comfort blankets, baby items for low-income mothers, and hats, scarves and gloves for the homeless.

Stitch’n Time dates
for 2013-2014:

September 22 • October 27

November 10 (Mitzvah Day)

December 15 • January 12

March 23 • May 18 • July 13


We have a professional instructor to assist us. So, prior knitting experience is not required. Yarn and patterns are provided, but you must bring your own needles (#8).

People of all ages are welcome to join us. However, participation is limited to members of the congregation. Sessions meet from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Light refreshments are served.

If you are unable to join us at the Temple, we can arrange for you to be part of the Stitch’n Time team at home. Just let us know!
