Needle Arts Friends


The Needle Arts Friends help children and families in our communities by sewing kimonos, bonnets and blankets; knitting/crocheting hats, scarves, gloves, sweaters, booties and blankets.  These hand-crafted items are distributed to facilities and clinics serving children.  The Charitable Association provides a work room, storage, yarn, fabric and other materials for these projects.

Items are distributed to these organizations:

  • Hephzibah Children's Home Association
  • Oak Park River Forest Day Nursery
  • Oak Park River Forest Infant Welfare Society's Children's Clinic
  • Sarah's Inn
  • Parenthesis Parent Child Center
Participation in NAF is open to any interested persons at any skill level.  Check our calendar listing for our meeting dates and times (generally, the first and third Fridays at 10:00 a.m.)
