Crafts for a Cause: Feb. 2019

There is another mountain of fleece, flannel and cotton stacking up in the Crafts for a Cause room, waiting for volunteers to turn them into blankets for needy children, pillows and dolls for hospital patients, baby beds for the NICU unit, and dresses for girls around the world.

We meet on alternating Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 in Room 124. No crafty skills required (although that’s always welcome!) for cutting fabric, stuffing pillows and sewing. Our next few sessions are: Feb. 4, and Feb. 18.

If you can’t make the work sessions, we have homework projects. We also have a Loom Hat project for those interested in making adult hats for Christ House and baby caps for Fair Oaks Hospital.

Crafts for a Cause had a fantastic response to our Holiday Bazaar in 2018, earning more than $5,000 in sales. The bazaar is our sole source of funding for the next year, so thanks to all who shopped! During 2018, we distributed 250 neck pillows, 83 dresses, 20 blankets, 118 heart pillows, 212 adult hats, 79 surgery dolls and an amazing 1,200 knitted and crocheted baby caps. We also donated 52 Christmas stockings and 86 Santa hats for newborns at Fair Oaks Hospital, donated to area charities and shelters, and supported Trinity’s Honduras missions. We have big plans for 2019, and hope you’ll be a part of our fun and rewarding ministry. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse at mollysprouse@gmail.com.
