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.

St. Margarets Senior Arts and Crafts

I am part of a group of Seniors who knit and crochet. We make lap robes for nursing homes, premie hat for infants in the hospital, blankets for half-way houses, childrens sweaters for various organizations, bed socks for veterans, felt animals for hospsitalized children, and many other projects. Most of these items are made from donated yarn from our memebers. We are just a small section of our Senior Club but all the members support us.

I cannot tell you how many items we give over the year--over two hundred and fifty, I'm sure. We have encouraged several to take up knitting and crocheting. We are a group of no more than ten at a time and we meet once a week at our local Church.
