Blankets for Preemies

I've been involved with Heart of Texas Threads of Love Chapter for 8 years now. I needed something to do after I retired and a friend suggested TOL.

I was hooked at the first meeting I went to. We sew flannel blankets, scent cloths, laundry bags at the sewing room every Monday. At home pillowcase dresses, knitted and crocheted blankets, hats, booties, burial gowns are made for 5 area hospitals NICU.

Occasionally a nurse, parent or grand parent will come to the sewing room and tell us how important receiving the above items met to the family. I can only imagine and am blessed with a talent and found that special place to share that talent with.
