The Friday Night Knitters group began in January 2010 for the purpose of knitting prayer shawls and teaching knitting to members in order to increase the volume produced.  

We also knit mittens, hats and scarves for the students at underprivileged Springfield schools.  We have sent hand knitted items to Wanless School in the past and currently to Jane Addams School.  This is part of the community outreach of our Mission Committee which targets a Springfield school to support by donating clothing; food; school supplies and providing adult volunteers when needed. 

We meet on Friday evenings every other week from 7-9 pm. Please come join us.  We welcome all members and non-members; crocheters too!
