We are a small group who sew, knit or crochet blankets for newborn babies. We meet quarterly and share a small potluck dinner. At this time we turn in any finished works and pick up any needed materials. You do not have to attend the meetings to help out! We will provide materials for you from our small budget to make these blankets if needed! We have a cabinet in the gathering space where you may drop off finished items, donations, etc.
We are making the blankets for Birthline of Denver, it’s an abortion alternative organization. Birthline assists unwed and underage mothers. Each mother receives a quilt, afghan and 4 receiving blankets.
We appreciate and welcome any donations of yarn or fabric from our generous parishioners.
Here are some great items to sew!
(Suggested material is baby flannel, baby friendly yarns, anything soft and baby colors! Washable yarns if crocheted or knitted. Stay away from wools for allergy reasons of course!)
- Single sided receiving blankets. Size approx. 36”-44” square depending on fabric width.Edges may be hemmed or surged.
- Baby Afghans (double sided) Suggested size 36”-45” square depending on fabric width of course!
- Quilts (batted) Suggested size 36” – 45” square again, depending on fabric width. Hand or machine pieced.
- Other items such as booties, hats, socks, etc. will be accepted as well.
