Page A-24 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014 ( compas ) continued from page A-19 150 hats they plan to give the school back- pack programs and about 20 of the 75 hats they've promised to be distributed at the com- munity meals at St. David of Wales Epis- copal Church. They've pledged to create 400 items for Christmas presents at nursing and rehabilitation cen- ters. The knitters and cro- cheters gather at Yards of Yarn courtesy of own- er Karen Chesnik. She calls the dedication of the members "compas- sionate, selfless -- it's beautiful." "I can just imagine the smiles there will be on Christmas in the nursing homes and the smiles on the chil- dren when it's cold and they'll have something to put on," she said. Chesnik added, "There's always time to help one another. This group shows how they take the time to be there to help." The South Puget Sound group was founded in October 2013 by Shelton resi- dent Hilda Ware, who joined a friend at her Gig Harbor gathering TmD W's - r ]ine Sdee, S kes 31 E VANCE ~ SHELTON of Loving Hearts. "God laid it on my heart to start one in Shelton," Ware said. Three women joined together to knit and crochet in the library at First Baptist Church in Shelton. The move to Yards of Yarn gives them a spot to store their yarn and other materials. Clara Perry-Lathan of Union joined the group for the first time Monday. Last year, she returned to Mason County after 15 years teaching women to knit, sew, crochet and start small businesses in Zimbabwe and South Africa. "All of my life, I've done community-service things," she said. Pat Moss has been a member of the group for about five months. Her husband met Ware, and after hearing about the group, volunteered his wife's services. "He's so sure I don't have anything to do," Moss said with a laugh. "His heart is in the right place."
