Prayer Shawl Minstry

Janet Mancinelli and I started the ministry to benefit those who need a little extra blessing. We use all types of yarn. We average making 5-6 each week. We have two groups that meet for 1 1/2 to 2 hours each Wednesday.
Some of the ladies knit and others crochet.
We also crochet baby booties, hats and blankets for our hospital to give to babies being adopted and for those less fortunate. We average 12 sets a month.
The response has been tremendous. We were seeking to bless others and they have blessed us. Our ministry has extended to other states and foreign countries. We made toboggans/scarves for those from our church serving in the military for Christmas. I take my crocheting with me and people always ask me what/why I am making. We have given shawls through the dentist office, the doctor's office, the eye doctor's office, on mission trips - everywhere I go people ask.
The ministry has been a blessing to those in need and to our group. We encourage all to start such a ministry. We were told recently about a lady who had received one of our shawls on her bed. She suffered a severe stroke. When people/family came in and saw the shawl on her hospital bed they were blessed by 'those who care so much'. (Sorry, I don't have pictures right now) Novella McClung
