The Granny Squares for Warmth (GSFW) group was created in November 2020 as a Barrhaven-based group with a mission to create and donate hand-made blankets in the Ottawa area.
Group members arrange for donations of yarn, crochet or knit granny squares, join the squares into lap blankets, baby blankets or single bed blankets and donate the blankets to organizations such as long-term care homes, women’s shelters, homeless shelters, maternity wards and more.
In addition to blankets, members have also made and donated shawls, hats, and baby wear.
Join us to crochet and join granny squares, to share and learn crochet stitches and techniques and to build a sense of community by making blankets for those in need. Everyone is welcome!

Jean-Luc Pilon, adjunct professor of sociology and anthropology at Carleton University as well as former curator of central archeology at the Canadian Museum of History will discuss the Ottawa region's ancient past.
Bits and pieces of this complex puzzle have surface over the past century and a haft, only to disappear into museum vaults.
Yet, many of these imprecisely located finds, along with detailed notes, combined with new knowledge gained from more than 25 years of research carried out at the mouth of the Gatineau River, begin to shed a light on the thousands of years of history.
