Crafts for a Cause just shipped out 41 handmade cotton dresses for needy girls in Uganda, in addition to donating 20 fleece blankets for the Linus Project to distribute to local children and teens in need of comfort. This is all on top of the monthly quota of 20 neck pillows that Crafts makes for patients at Fair Oaks Hospital, along with caps for chemotherapy patients and knit caps for newborns. Nell Gilmore continues to churn out those baby hats for us; new recruit Rory Hartsoe recently donated her first batch of caps.
We’ll be working on the pillows, dolls, caps and dresses at our work sessions on Monday nights in August – Mon., Aug. 14, and Mon., Aug. 28, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. All adults are welcome, even if you think you’re not a “crafter.” We also have homework if you’re a knitter or crocheter. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.
