CASA GRANDE, ARIZ. — Liane Bergmann of Arizona crochets hats for the homeless in Nashville, Tennessee, TriValleyCentral.com reports.
She spoke from her dining room table in Casa Grande. The living room was the next room over. Her latest project covered the coffee table — end to end. It was not one big spread, but 165 crocheted hats. They came in bright Life Saver colors, something of a Bergmann hallmark. The hats, when worn, will stand out. And they’ll likely be much appreciated by the homeless in Nashville, Tennessee, especially the children.
Bergmann’s hats will fit kids from 3 to 12.
She belongs a group that does charity work on behalf of the Pleasant View United Methodist Church. Pleasant View is just outside Nashville. She connected to the church through a best friend from Illinois, where Bergmann once owned an art gallery and frame shop.
Bergmann moved to Casa Grande about eight years ago. Her friend, Bonnie Cooper, moved to Pleasant View and joined the Methodist church. And there, Bergmann said, “she started the Prayer Shawl Ministry.”
At the moment, Bergmann is looking to next year. She’s seeking donations of either yarn or money for yarn. If interested, contact her at 510-6050 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
