Beginning in September and thru December we will be having a donation drive for Hope House! Please help us help them by collecting the items on the list through out these months. Please share with your co-workers,  friends, neighbors, and church!! Tell everyone!


July Update:

We took advantage of the cool air and took Chicktime outdoors! It was the perfect set up to tye-dye tshirts and just unwind with each other with good conversation!

It’s a beautiful thing when we can come together just for the purpose of loving one another!

Thank you to all the volunteers who came to support the ministry of Chicktime! It was a wonderful turnout and we hope it’s even bigger next month!

Peace and love be with you all~

May Update:

A HUGE thank you to Heather for leading tonight’s workshop on such short notice. Please look her, her crafts, and her cakes up online. This woman has talent AND a big heart.

Thank you to Hannah for her day care skills with the kiddos and Katie for participating, volunteering to clean up afterward, and for donating to our cause!

Chicktime Norton’s third workshop was a great success! Hope House staff and residents with Chicktime volunteers made quick, easy, and creative flower pots and flower designs!



April Update:

Lina of Made by Lina Crafts (look her up on Instagram and Facebook) showed us how to make our own clay pot wind chimes. Savannah played Simon Says with some lit’luns while their moms got to enjoy some fellowship with some staff members of Hope House and co-leader Alicia, and everyone enjoyed some candy! It was a great night for a Chicktime Norton workshop.

‍We’ve been postponed a bit this month. No worries! Just gives us more time to get some Easter basket treats together. 🌸🌱🐰

We would also like to take this time to announce that we still have openings are for workshop leaders in 2017! If you feel called to serve the hurting women and children of our community… Chicktime Norton is the outlet you’ve been looking for. Have a special talent, skill, or trade that you would like to share? Contact Savannah today! No idea is too big or too small for Hope House and Chicktime Norton =}

March Update:


A staff member of Hope House said that Chicktime has been explained to the families we serve as “just a chance to relax and get to know some new people,” and I think after our first workshop tonight that that is a WONDERFUL description of what Chicktime Norton can provide in its baby stages. We had a blast eating candy, chatting, and getting to know each other while working on cross-stitch patterns. It was wonderful to make a connection with kindred spirits and share our stories and spread a little message of hope around!

Alicia earned her title as Workshop Leader this month because she is focused, knows what she’s doing, and she has an excellent instructor’s voice. You can see her below, working diligently on a pattern I am positive will turn out picture perfect. That patch of black fabric with some Xs on it is as far as I could get with mine. 😂

Highlight of the night: a little girl colored pictures for us! Meet my “cat WITH a hat, Snuggles.”

We are SO excited to move forward! For next month’s workshop – and all the following workshops – volunteers will meet at the business office at 369 Gateway Plaza #102 Gate City, VA 24251at 5 PM for a little meeting before we get started on the main event from 5:30 PM-7:30 PM. We will stay AT the business office for the duration of the workshops.

Our workshop begins promptly at 5:30pm. Please arrive no later than 4:45pm so that we may carpool to our charity partner’s site.


February Update:

Due to some illness at our charity partner’s house, we’ve had to cancel this first event but we didn’t let it discourage us a bit. February was an amazing month for Chicktime Norton!

This month, our chapter leader, Savannah, began her training to establish our chapter. She met with our charity partner, Hope House, for the first time and had the opportunity to tour the facility and get to know some of the staff.

We got the first shipment of Chicktime shirts in for Chicktime Norton. If you’d like a shirt, please contact Savannah at norton@chicktime.com. Shirts are $20 and all money goes to funding Chicktime Norton!

Savannah also got these grown up looking beautiful business cards in.

We hope YOU will join us for Chicktime March!


Chicktime Norton is proud to announce that our very first workshop is right around the corner!! Join us =)
