Backgrounder

From The Citizen April 28, 2022 – Local crafters are “putting their needles together” to help recognize staff at local long-term care facilities with a project that started in Blyth called Huron Crafters for Caregivers.

While the project started with a suggestion from Huron County Tourism Development Officer Rick Sickinger, it’s been two local crafters, Irene Kellins and Sharlene Bolen, who have pushed the project forward. The project will see local knitters and crocheters produce handmade gifts to give to people in Huron County’s long-term care facilities.

In an interview with The Citizen, the pair said the original target was to have enough to give 300 gifts to people working at local long-term care facilities. However, Kellins and Bolen hope to go past that and give a gift to everyone who helps care for what Kellins called “the most important treasure”, which is the elders of the community.
