Several students at Edgewood enjoyed learning how to crochet, using yarn and size H crochet hooks donated by the Craft Yarn Council of America.  They are looking forward to building on their skills next year.  Mrs. Eberhardt and the Knit/Crochet club would love donations of yarn, crochet hooks and knitting needles to be used next school year.  If you find any of these supplies during summer cleaning, please consider donating to our eager group of crafters.  Thanks so much!
