Threads of Comfort: Prayer Shawls & Blankets, Cancer Patient & Children's Comfort Items, Prayer Pockets
NEWS FLASH! Calling ALL SEWISTS!
ToC Teams up with Sew Malawi to create new SEWN blankets!
These easy-to-make, personalize, and launder blankets will be distributed in area nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The first local mission will bring these blankets to Alzheimer's patients and those living with differing cognitive abilities at The Cottages in League City. Possible future international mission fields exist wherever Days for Girls (see the sidebar) travels with St. Christopher mission teams, combining hygiene kits with infant and children's blankets.
Learn how to make these SIMPLE blankets!
No special skills required. Something for all to do.
Bring a sewing machine if you have one!
STAY TUNED FOR AN ANNOUNCEMENT AS TO THE DATE OF THIS EVENT!
More about Threads of Comfort
Anyone who has ever received a prayer shawl or blanket can tell you that it is long-treasured for the tangible prayers and assurance of community it brings. Contact the church office if you or someone you care about would benefit from a "hug" that lasts through situations of illness, distress, and loneliness. If there is not a shawl or blanket ready-made, one will be commissioned. There are hands at the ready to pray for healing with every stitch.
Are you a maker of things made of thread? Do you want to be? Are you a beginner and just need a pattern and/or mentor to get started? If you can be a maker, mentor, or both, or to find out about the next scheduled meeting, please contact Threads of Comfort Ministry Lead, Melodie Keener at email@example.com, or Ally Hardick at firstname.lastname@example.org, or see the sidebar calendar at the homepage!
Donations of yarn of a full skein or more, gratefully accepted. Blessings, in loops and pearls, are sure to follow. Although we have no "standard" for these prayer shawls, and will gratefully accept any creation, these websites offers a variety of possible patterns: CROCHET and KNIT.
