I love Anacortes. As a newcomer to the area I chose to join organizations that called to my creative side as well as a love of community. I enjoy making connections with SI Fidalgo Island projects and the needs of other Anacortes groups. The Cultured Purls, my knittting guild, contribute to our annual Community Baby Shower with handmade blankets, sweaters and hats and the Fidalgo Island Quilters make quilts for the Books and Blankets project. Our own talented members knit and crochet warm hats for people undergoing chemotherapy at the Island Hospital Cancer Center. SI Fidalgo Island has a project to fit everyone - from scholarships, to crafting, to just plain fun."
