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 came across the group on TV and became interested in their goal. We now have over 100 knitters or crocheters in group. We make hats, mitts slippers and scarves for the needy and underpriveledged and the out in the cold of all ages.Last year we donated over 5000 items. We recieve yarn from stores and others with a good heart. Many of us purchase our own yarns, I do. I also donate some too.
The children are allowed to pick their own hats out and the media writes of our cause and the lady that started the group goes on TV to talk about what we do and tries to get more people involved. The group ranges in age from 15 to 80+. We meet twice a year to deliver our work and have a nice potluck lunch, learn what others are doing and trade patterns for items.
The Sr. building I live in , we have a craft club that meets once a week and four of us donate much of our work to the group.
I hope others try to help out anyone in need especially in this cold weather. Thank you for listening. Keep your stories coming and maybe more will help. I use many of the patterns from Lion Brand and their yarns as they have a large variety to choose from.
Sincerely Ruth

Sorry no pictures, all my items gone for the Christmas Season as they are distributed in Nov.
