The Lydia Project
Do you love to knit or crochet? The General Conference of the United Methodist Church will meet in Minneapolis in 2020. Every delegate, dignitary, bishop and spouse will be presented with a hand made scarf which will serve as a memento of the General Conference. Help is needed to knit or crochet 10,000 scarves. The scarves are to be made with royal purple acrylic yarn. (Think the royal purple color of the Minnesota Vikings.) Please do not use lavender or variegated yarn. The pattern can be the creator’s choice or you can get pattern ideas at www.dakotasumc.org/lydiaproject. The scarf needs to be 6-7 inches wide and 60 inches long. You can add fringe, but the scarf needs to measure 60 inches long prior to adding the fringe. After completion of the scarf a tag will be added to it which will tell the City and State where the scarf was made as well as the person who made it and the name of the church. Each scarf will be put into a Ziploc bag and brought to the 2019 Dakotas Annual Conference to then be taken to the 2020 General Conference. Please contact Trudy Baird at 360-9786 if you would like to help with the Lydia
Project or if you have any questions.
