Westside Library Loopy Loomers

The Westside Branch Library Loopy Loomers started as a group, free and open for all ages to join, in 2015 with a focus on loom knitting items from beanie hats to stuffed animals to donate to local non-profit organizations. They have donated to Southern Oaks Care Center, the Council on Aging of West Florida, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Sacred Heart Hospital, and Emerald Gardens Assisted Living Facility, and the Center for Pediatric Rehabilitation. They plan to donate 50 stuffed animals in August to the local fire and police departments. They started the group to be able to fulfill their service to their local community and at the same time, have a little fun with loom knitting by making friends, teaching others, and sharing techniques on how to improve.
