“Stitches of Hope” Prayer Shawl Ministry News

The “Stitches of Hope” ministry brings a renewed sense of Hope, Joy, and Peace for our church, our community, and our country.  We meet the 2nd Sunday of each month (for about an hour) for an informal time of praying, talking, stitching, bagging, tagging, laughing, sharing, and comparing our handmade creations with each other.

Please note: There will be No Stitches of Hope meeting in April due to the Holiday. Our May meeting is moved to May 19th due to Mother’s Day being the second Sunday.

Our meetings are open to everyone, so we hope you will come and join us. You DO NOT need to know how to knit or crochet to be part of our group, but we’d be happy to teach you if you’d like to learn.

To help us start making fleece tie-blankets this year, please donate fleece material or cash donations to buy fleece to Kim Berkey or leave them marked in the Copy Room. Donations will be accepted anytime but, the early, the better, so we can start ‘prepping’ the blankets for tying in the fall by the Sunday School children. One great place to buy the fleece is JoAnn Fabrics – be on the lookout for sales and coupons! The fleece fabric needs to be a piece at least 1 and ½ yards, either patterned or solid. You could also buy two matching pieces to make a complete blanket or one piece and we will match it with another.

With your help, we donated 42 blankets in 2018, an Asbury record–let’s go for more this year to help demonstrate God’s love and care for these little ones!

Here are a few other ways that you can help:

1) Donate a box of 2 1/2 gallon size plastic zipper storage bags (available at the Dollar Store)

2) Donate a box of “Thinking of You” or “Get Well” cards (we send these to people who have already received a shawl but need to know that they are not forgotten)

3) Donate STAMPS for mailing the cards  and

4) We can always use your PRAYERS!

Please place your donations in the box (clearly marked for “Stitches of Hope”) in the copy room.

If you have any questions, please call Janet Jackson 302-366-1538 or Georgiann Miller 302-328-7654.
