Welcome to From the Heart Stitchers


Continuing From the Heart’s Soft Reopening – October 31, 2021

The From the Heart workshop is open from 10am until 2pm 4 days a week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The total number allowed inside the workshop  at any given time continues to be capped at 10, which includes the 2 Elves. In accord with current CDC guidelines, we are requiring that masks be worn by those who come into the workshop.

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. We are continuing to keep a written record of who enters, although we will no longer take temperatures as you enter.

Please do not come to the workshop if you have a cold or other illness or have been in the company of someone who has been, or is, ill.

Please continue to tag your completed projects before dropping them off but it is no longer necessary to bag them, with the exception of items intended for Vessels of Mercy International.  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.  Please note you do not need to enter the workshop or sign in if you are simply dropping items in the bin outside.

From our humble beginnings…

…in a Starbucks coffee shop in 2001, to our close to 2,000 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!
