Brenda began knitting 7 years ago after being invited to a knitting group that several of her friends attend. She was hesitant at first to learn the new craft, but her passion grew as she found there were organizations and individuals who could benefit from her creations. Her primary focus is knit-to-donate. She’s shared her handcrafted hats with the Lange-Fuhs Cancer Center, the American Heart Association’s Heart Month event at Deaconess Gateway Hospital, and the homeless in Chicago where she’s donated over 200 hats. For Brenda, it’s all about giving to those in need!
