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.

Knit, Crochet and Sewing Projects

Our group of 5 women has been together for about six years. We meet weekly to support one another as well as working individually at home. In 2013 we made and donated 468 items, prayer shaws, laprobes, purple baby hats, squares to be sent to Africa, hats for veterans at our local VA hospital, sweaters for Knit for Kids, hats for Hats for Hugs, laprobes for local nursing homes. We have not had local publicity about our work. We have received many thank you notes from those who have received our projects, especially telling us how soft and comfortable they are and how nice it is to know there are people thinking about them. The joy of being together each week encourages each of us to continue despite sometimes aching fingers. None of our family members are in need of knit items, and so we have the joy of working on our projects knowing they will bring a smile to someone's face and brighten their day.
