Baker Demonstration School's After-School Club Knits for YWCA

When the Baker Demonstration after-school club, Projects with Midge, began in September, cold weather was far off. But the seven fifth-graders were already thinking about how to keep many less fortunate folks warm in December. 

  “It was their idea from the beginning to knit and crochet hats, headbands, scarves and vests,” said Midge Sterrett, an after-school volunteer at Baker. Piper Bailey of Evanston said, “It’s really fun to knit with friends but also helping some in need.” Anika Kaushikkar of Evanston and Olivia Laske of Wilmette added, “It means a lot to know you are making a difference.”

The knitted and crocheted garments were wrapped in bright paper and tied with handwritten notes by the girls. All gifts will go to the YWCA Mary Lou’s Place, 1215 Church St., a domestic-violence shelter for women.
