Blankets for Kids
Knit, Crochet, or Sew for kids to teens

You are invited to come together to sew, quilt, 
crochet or knit blankets for sick and traumatized 
children in hospitals, shelters and hospice.  
You are welcome to drop in any time.  
Knitting and crocheting skills are taught.  
We also need those that just want to help sew

FCE contributes blankets 
as one of our Outreach Projects. 

Monthly educational programs are presented at 10 AM in the
Multi-purpose room of the Cooperative Extension Office

Blankets are distributed to shelters, such as Stepping Stones, the Betty Ann Krahnke Shelter for victims of domestic violence, Heart and Home, local hospitals, including Holy Cross, Montgomery General, Shady Grove, NIH Ronald McDonald House and Children’s National Medical Center.

 

Our expenses include batting for the sewn blankets and sewing machine repairs; we have been blessed with financial donations to FCE for this project.

 

WE WELCOME EVERYONE to our meetings.  Some people come and stay all day, some only long enough to drop off a finished quilt and pick up more supplies.  Some women work behind the scenes doing their work quietly on their own and sending the finished blanket with a friend.  So come on over, bring a sandwich and a smile and we will supply materials, a drink, and dessert.

 For more information please call Pat at (301) 460-5451.

 

Programs and services of the Maryland FCE are open to all citizens without regard to race, color, sex, disability, religion, age or national origin.
