Their aim is to reach out to people who may need cheering up – and to equip others to do the same. Card Sharks makes and sends cards to JCBC Homebound Members on special occasions and stocks several Sunday School classes with cards that can be sent to class members and friends who might need a little love and encouragement. Their sincere desire is to help keep anyone from feeling as though they’ve been forgotten. No previous experience is required. Materials and assistance in learning to use the equipment is provided.

Sew, Knit, Crochet
The Hook and Needle Guild of Johns Creek is a group of folks who knit, crochet, and sew just about anything! Over the years this group has made and sent hundreds – maybe thousands – of gowns, pillowcase dresses, blankets, shawls, and the like to people all over the world who need them in places like Puerto Rico, Haiti, Siberia and across the US. Recently, the Hook and Needle Guild has formed an association with Tiny Stitches – a local non-profit providing gowns, sleepers, quilts, wash cloths, bibs etc. to newborns in need born in hospitals throughout the Atlanta area. The group also makes Prayer Shawls as encouraging gifts to cancer patients through CanCare. And individual guild members are always working on personal projects for fun. A passion of Dolle Reeves – who heads up the sewers – is teaching people with no previous sewing experience how to sew. It’s a great place to learn while doing good in the world. Materials are provided.
