Southside From the Heart

Southside From the Heart

Due to the ongoing pandemic, Southside from the Heart is not holding in-person meetings, but the group continues to create beautiful items for those in need.

Southside from the Heart is a part of From the Heart, an organization founded in 2001, with a current membership of 1200+ people. You can learn more about this organization and gain access to patterns, etc. at From the Heart. Also, connect with us on Facebook!

All items are knitted with donated yarn and then donated to fulfill needs in the communities. No matter your skill level, we could use your help! Don't know how to knit or crochet? We'll teach you!
