Crafters Haven is a unique group that specialize in the art of crochet. They make crafts from handbags to blankets that are donated to various places throughout Akron such as hospitals, nursing homes and homeless shelters.
“Crafting is definitely one of my strongest passions. I learned to knit when I was a brownie in the Girl Scouts.” said Lori Barnett, one of the members of the group. “This group formed actually when I was teaching a class, at Galilee Church in Barberton and the church supported us and allowed us to get together on a weekly basis.”
The group now meets once a month and is open to anyone who wants to join.
