The North Country of New York State is a relatively isolated and rural region. Sometimes we think of it as living "in the sticks". Thus the name for our church and community outreach to chemotherapy patients. Love from the Sticks launched in the fall of 2019.
The group name has double meaning as we also use "sticks" in the process of knitting and crocheting soft hats for our neighbors. This effort is a simple way to express concern for those who are suffering. Each hat is stitched with care and prayer before delivery to local cancer treatment centers.
We use freely available chemo cap patterns and donated resources. We also offer introductory lessons in these fiber arts, knitting community and strengthening multi-generational bonds in the process. Please get in touch to learn more.
