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.

I became involved with Stitches from the Heart, a volunteer group supplying preemies and less fortunate newborn babies, approximately five yrs. ago. This group was founded in California seven yrs ago and has grown by volumes each year. We supply hospitals across the United States with hats, sweaters, blankets, booties and quilts for the newborn as well as families with special needs.

As of last October I became the N.Y. representative with our volunteers in this area mailing directly to me for further distribution. I have received approximately 1400 articles since the first of the year and gained over 1000 volunteers. We have grown to included lap robes for nursing homes and the VA hospitals, chemo hats for cancer patients, and now supply battered women's shelters and homeless facilities in the N.Y..L.I. area.

The little hats are so much fun to make and take just an hour to knit up. While knitting or crocheting I find it a wonderful time to meditate on all life's blessings that one is able to contribute to these causes and not have to be a recipient of these articles.

Our main location is in California with branches across the U.S.
