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.

Tamassee School, South Carolina

The Daughters of the American Revolution sponsor several Native American boarding schools throughout the country. For the past three years, I have knitted and crocheted over 500 scarves for the girls at these schools, and made fleece scarves for the boys. I initially became involved because I had many scarves leftover from boutiques in which I participated. The last boutique, three years ago, was very disappointing, and my husband convinced me that it was not worth the year of knitting and crocheting required to create sufficient inventory and variety. So I spent the next year working through my yarn knitting for one of the schools, then added a second school. A few of the DAR members have donated yarn to keep the project going, and have told me that in some cases these scarves are the only gifts the children receive. I have received delightful notes from the students, all indicating that the scarves were most appreciated and were worn in the local holiday parade.

My favorite yarn is Homespun, which I use for wedding afghans, scarves, and prayer shawls. The feel, weight, texture and color combinations make every project outstanding. I have also used probably every other fancy, fluffy, colorful yarn made by Lion, as well as the baby yarns and the 4-ply worsteds. I love Lion Brand Yarn and just wish that I lived in New York City so that I could come to your store and play.

Thank you for producing such wonderful products.

Respectfully, Christine Eubank
