Turning Point makes Ruthie Marks Shawl


We received a wonderful Yarn Donation from Basha Kooler, Kooler Designs and Ruthie Marks Crochet Pattern Book! Ladonna crocheted this beautiful Wrap for Turning Point’s Program Manager Kalie from one of the designs!

Thank You so much, Basha and Ruthie, with people like you life is beautiful!

Happy Birthday to Me

Surprise Birthday Party for me, from the Turning Point Clients! So much FUN! They made me this fabulous Poncho and Hat, decorated our room and served tea and muffins! I can’t tell you all how much I love them. They make my life so rich!


And here is a fabulous knit beanie with braids by Chamane and modeled by Kathy!
