St Anthony’s Arty Crafties

The Arty Crafties is a group of nine ladies who meet two Wednesdays a month. We have been meeting since about 1996. Our aim each year is to make Christmas presents for the residents in three local nursing homes. The numbers are usually around 120 ladies and 65 men. We also give presents to people in the Parish who are no longer able to get to church. We also make decorations for the Seniors Lunch in December and a small present for everyone attending the lunch. 

The ladies contribute a small amount each meeting to cover the costs of these presents. The ladies also contribute to a special fund in memory of Shirley Prince, a late member of our group.  The money goes to a Uniting Church Mission in Africa. We also knit scarves, beanies and mittens for Melbourne’s homeless. We meet on Wednesdays and encourage ‘crafties’ of all abilities to join us at any time. 

Please contact Jill Lennox (via the Parish Office) if you would like more details on the Arty Crafties.
