Collaborating with UC Students





The Forefront Stitchers took the challenge and knit scarves as part of a competition sponsored by University of Chicago Council on University Programming - students who have organized a winter festival. - scarves for people who use shelter services. We won with 93 scarves and Wallace House was a close second with 89. Total was over 300. FFS distributed them to shelters and fammilies in need on the South Side of Chicago. This was lots of fun - knitting and crochetting and competition - with service - a dynamic event
