On August 18th, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM, A Stitch In Time, owned by Eva Donnelly, located in Bethel, Connecticut, is teaming up local fiber artist and Certified Crochet Teacher, Dee Stanziano to offer free basic crochet lessons to create afghans to be donated to the Elizabeth House, Danbury's battered women's shelter.  Join us for this unique event while learning how to crochet all for a good cause!

Crochet has been touted as "the new yoga," and is one of today's fastest growing fiber arts with a median age of 35.  With the summer starting to  come to a close, many start thinking of the cool autumn nights.  The idea of snuggling under a handmade blanket is comforting.  But what if you had to leave everything behind and make a fresh start?  The afghans that result from this Special Event will help those women and children who did just that.

Crocheters and knitters of all ages and abilities are invited to come join Dee, Eva and her staff to Crochet for Charity!  Come with 6" X 9" crocheted or knitted squares, or come on in and learn how to crochet a square.  Sewers are welcomed too as Dee will even offer instructions on how to assemble them!  Our goal is to create blankets that will be donated to Danbury's "Elizabeth House," a local shelter for women and children.  Don't have time to join us but still want to contribute?  Drop off completed squares anytime!

Dee Stanziano is a Certified Crochet Teacher through the Craft Yarn Council of America, the Crochet Guild of America's Email Correspondent, and founder of the local group, The Happily Hooked on Crocheting Club that meets monthly at the Danbury Hospital and at the Borders bookstore in Brookfield.  She has been teaching in the tri-state area for nearly six years, has work on display at the Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles in Berkley, California, and is a published fiber artist.  ( &
