Welcome to From the Heart Stitchers


From the Heart will attempt a soft reopening on Saturday May 1st.  Members will receive an email around the middle of April to explain that the Board would like to attempt.  All dependent on the numbers obviously.

Stay tuned for more information.


From the Heart Workshop Remains Closed but our Outreach Continues

Please see the Events Calendar for details.

Our weekly Sunday afternoons (1pm – 2:30pm) drop-off/pick-up events continue as scheduled.  No appointment is needed if you simply want to drop items off or pick up tags, a teddy bear, fabric, and/or plastic bags.  What you drop off must be tagged with a From the Heart logo tag, tied on to the item in a bow not a knot, and placed in a securely closed, dated plastic bag.  You can place more than one item in a plastic bag, but not more than one type of item may be put in a bag.

If From the Heart members want to go inside the workshop to select yarn for use in creating future From the Heart projects, an appointment is needed.  Each week, I will send out an email containing a unique link for use in making an appointment, using a program called SignUpGenius. This link will be different every week so please watch to use the latest email when you sign up to select yarn.

Please be aware that only people with appointments will be allowed to enter the workshop, one person per 10-minute time slot.

Your temperature will be taken prior to your entering the workshop and you will be required to use the sanitizer on the front desk before going back to select yarn.  Additionally, you MUST wear a facemask the entire time you are at one of these events, from the time you exit your car until you re-enter it to leave and you must practice social distancing at all times. As each visit is limited to 10 minutes, the bathroom will be off limits to all. Please bring your own bag if possible if you are getting yarn as we only have a limited number of bags at this time.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

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!
