Crafts for a Cause October Update (2018)

Crafts for a Cause

Recently, Trinity’s Crafts for a Cause ministry was recognized for the contributions of neck pillows, blankets, baby caps, adult hats, teddy bears and Christmas stockings made to Fair Oaks Hospital’s programs to bring comfort to patients of all ages. Volunteers Marti Bowden, Naty de las Alas and Molly Sprouse, along with Pastor Jim Sprouse, represented Trinity at the Teddy Bear Tea, where the chief medical officer reported that since 1991 the program has generated nearly 94,000 comfort items! Crafts for a Cause is honored to be a part of that effort.

Meanwhile, the work continues to produce all those comforting pillows, blankets and hats at alternating Monday night work sessions, coming up on Oct. 8 & 22 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. You don’t have to be a crafter to participate. We also have homework projects if you can’t make the meetings.

Crafts is starting a Loom Hat Project to make warm adult hats for Christ House and newborn hats for Fair Oaks Hospital. Look for the display in the Narthex and the Fellowship Building for details on materials and instructions. This is a fun, easy project for men, women or older children.
