Do you  knit or crochet or do other handwork? It’s lots more fun when you’re doing it with friends. Learn a new stitch, watch a video or get help with a problem or just visit a while. We make purple hats for babies as part of the Purple Hats for Babies/Shaken Baby Syndrome program. We’ve also make red hats for babies as part of the Little Hats Big Hearts program. Bring a friend to Sheep on a Stick. Cookies welcome!
