PROBUS Club of Durham West

Create And Chat

If your hobbies include knitting, crocheting, quilting, needlework, beading, colouring or any another creative activity, please join us at the Create and Chat group.  We meet the third Monday of the month to chat and craft and share our projects and ideas.

We gather at Westney Gardens (1010 Westney Road North, Ajax, NW corner of Westney and Rossland) in the Arts Studio on the main floor from 1:00 - 3:00 pm. The gathering place is very spacious with ample parking, as well as a cafe.

2022 has been another interesting year for our group. We had some cancellations due to Covid and rain but were able to get together, if not at Westney Gardens as a regular meeting, then at various restaurants to catch up and trade tips and news on our latest projects.

During the year we’ve provided many blankets and baby hats to Lakeridge Health; knitting and crocheting supplies to a group that provides instruction on how to use them; Halloween costumes to the neonatal unit at Sunnybrook Hospital; and red scarves for Aids Durham (38 scarfs).

Our last meeting of the year was a celebration of all we’ve accomplished during 2022 at a lunch at Boston Pizza on Monday, November 21st.

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to everyone and I look forward to seeing you, healthy and happy, in 2023.
