Welcome to From the Heart Stitchers

Continuing From the Heart’s Soft Reopening, Tuesday June 1, 2021

Beginning Tuesday, June 1st, the workshop will be open from 11am until 1pm 4 days a week, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. If you wish to volunteer to be an Elf (i.e., staff the workshop), please contact Tricia to let her know.  This plan will be modified as we move forward, so please continue to check your emails, Facebook, and our webpage for updates.

Also, beginning June 1, there will be no need to sign up. We are capping the number inside the workshop to 10, which includes the 2 Elves.   You may enter the workshop to get yarn and, if you are not staying, you will not be included in the count of 10 people.  For the time being, we will continue to take temperatures and keep a record of who enters.  We are also asking, in the short run, that people continue to remain masked while inside and socially distance within reason.

Please continue to tag your completed projects before dropping them off but it is no longer necessary to bag them.  If you do bag them, please include a list of what is in the bag. There will be a bin outside for you to drop your items into if you don’t want to enter the workshop.

There will be NO MORE Sunday afternoon pick-up/drop-off events.

If you are not a member and wish to become one, please scroll down and “Sign Up For News”.  To ask a question please use the Contact Us button found HERE.

Please see the Events Calendar for details.

Tricia Ennis, President of From the Heart

From our humble beginnings…

…in a Starbucks coffee shop in 2001, to our close to 1,800 member base today, the volunteer organization From the Heart continues its charitable mission.

From the Heart is involved in numerous projects, from making chemo hats for local cancer centers, preemie baby hats for the tiniest of our recipients, sleeping bags and warm mitten sets for the homeless in the Richmond community.

From the Heart volunteers are constantly finding new opportunities to help, and encourage anyone who knows of an unmet need in the community to please bring it to our attention.

We invite anyone interested in joining our cause to join us by email, web site, or check the latest newsletter for our schedule and just show up!

Volunteers are angels in disguise. Spread your wings…Join From the Heart!
