Holy Needles was formed in March 2009. We crochet, knit, sew, and quilt matching beanies, booties, and blankets for newborns of families in need, blankets, hats and scarves for homeless, blankets for chemo patients, pillowcases for children in transition, and prayer shawls are created to provide comfort for emotionally needy. Our items are distributed at local hospitals, the VA, other groups, and charitable organizations in Tucson, AZ. Our goal is to gracefully meet the needs of the needy.
