Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

mission projects

A group of knitter and crochet friends make blankets and stocking caps for foreign and local missions for our church. Most of the yarn has been donated to me as older ladies no longer use it. Recently we sent over 300 pillow case dresses to Africa and Hati.We also give a knitted or crocheted white blanket to babies who are dedicated in our church. We furnish the yarn and do not charge for making them.I personally have used lots of lionbrand yarn for my projects but do not often get labels with the donated yarn. Also most of the fabric and trims for the dresses were donated as well. We have not published our projects outside of our church family and friends. A group of ladies meet at my home twice a month to do any type needlework they desire. Most are at some stage of knitting progression be it blanket squares or dishcloths. Most every one is working on something. It's also fun to share ideas and assistance.One friend shared a framed Christmas tree made out of old jewelry made by her mother years ago. W E ALL WANT TO MAKE ONE someday.Harriett
