Warming Families

I became involved with Warming Families because I like to donate my time and energy to doing what I love and that is crocheting. I have taken a knitting class and want to take more. I love using Lion Brand Yarn and I especially love Vanna's new collection. I make warm blankets, shawls, hats, gloves for shelters, domestic violence groups, disabled people and hospice groups. I love seeing children and the elderly eyes light up when you give them the gift of warmth in the winter time. Shawls are conformting to someone suffering from cancer. It has warmed my heart every time I give someone a blanket they can snuggle in bed or on the sofa with. I teach kids and adults how to crochet. We should all try and work harder recruiting others in the community to learn how to do something wonderful for others.We donated over 25,000 hats with a wonderful donation from Lands End. Way to go, and I hope we can do it again.
