When feeling the pressures of life, Suze Swink, of Zephyrhills, often escapes by diving into her crafts. When she felt the need to do something more productive and purposeful with her skills, she helped co-create the fiber arts group, ‘Yarn for a Cause.’ The group, which now has five members, meets each Thursday at 6 p.m., at the New River Branch Library in Wesley Chapel. They crochet, knit and sew unique, and useful items to benefit a number of local organizations and causes. They work together on projects and do individual work, as well. Most of the materials they use to make pillows, linens and clothing come from donations. They upcycle materials into useful and functional pieces for people in need. The group welcomes new members of all skill levels. For more information, call the New River Branch Library (813) 788-6375.
