Wanamaker Road Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., has formed A Good Yarn Club to knit and crochet items for local charities.

The group meets on the second and fourth Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. in the church basement.

Summer dates are July 14, July 28, Aug. 11 and Aug. 25.

Items created will go to Caring Pregnancy Options, New Hope Ministries and the Topeka Rescue Mission. Or participants may choose another charity.

All experience levels are welcome, and free patterns will be provided.
