Your page for all things crafting!
Crafters are meeting after the long winter. Our Mission and Purpose is to provide hand made items for our church and those in need in our community and beyond. We knit, crochet, sew and craft shawls, hats, scarves, mittens, baby items, blankets, and throws of all sizes.
We need your help! We would like to increase our membership so we can keep up our mission. Please consider joining us even if you don’t know how to knit, crochet, or sew. We teach and our patterns are simple. We also furnish supplies. We meet on Mondays twice a month, May to November. Upcoming meetings on May 9, 7:00 pm at Cheryl’s, and May 23, 10:00 am at Calvary. Call Cheryl Colford at 218-368-3098 for more information or if you would like to join.
Covid did not stop the Calvary Crafters in 2020 from working to provide for the needs of our shelters and community. We figured out how to safely gather and plan and work individually on the projects we normally do. Thrivent provided us with a grant and using the materials we had, and some donations, we managed to make around 313 items. That’s very impressive for a group of about 8 ladies! These items went to Joe Lueken Cancer Center, Village of Hope, People’s Church, Park Place, The Women’s Shelter, United Churches, and Northwest Pregnancy Center.
Our Calvary Crafters have been very busy this year! Here is a list of donations that they were able to provide in 2019. Be sure to thank them for all of their hard work and selfless actions when you see them!
Hospital Infant Hats – 84, Chemo Hats – 33, Prayer Shawls – 20+, Prayer Scarves – 13, Senior High School Scarves-30, Fleece Blankets – 47, and numerous hats, scarves, and mittens to the Bemidji community.
We would like to limit donations of yarn to specific types. Also, if you would like to make a donation, please speak with the folks in Calvary’s office. We would like to confirm that we could use the items as well as be informed of what is coming in beforehand.

Thank you for your generous donations!!
Our Calvary Crafters attend a day time meeting on the 4th Monday each month, at Giovanni’s Pizza, which is located downtown. They will continue meeting at Giovanni’s for their upcoming meetings throughout the year.
