2018 No Sew Blanket Fellowship

We invite you, your family and friends to join our Annual No-Sew Fleece Blanket Making Fellowship. The blankets that we make will keep many hearts and bodies warm this winter. This is a great community service project as we share the love of Jesus simply through the warmth of a fleece blanket! 

We will meet on Saturday, October 20th at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall. We should finish by 1 PM.
For first timers, we will show you how to make the no-sew blankets, no experience needed!
Tools and materials needed to make the blanket:
-----------------------------—————-----------------------
1. a pair of sharp fabric scissors
2. sewing pins or safety pins
3. blue painter's tape
4. Two pieces of matching fleece that is 48 inches x 60 inches or 72 inches x 60 inches.
Or you can purchase Fleece Blanket Kits from Joann .  You can also sign up for coupons.  
         
If you do not have time to shop for the materials, we will have extra fleece/fabric available for you to make a blanket at the fellowship. We will have a box for voluntary donation and we encourage you to sponsor a blanket.

We will serve a light brunch and you are welcome to bring a plate (fruits or snacks) to the table.  We should wrap up by 1 pm. 

*** Update ***
This year, we will be donating the blankets to the residents of the Care Center at Westchester Senior Living.  Westchester is operated by Volunteers of America, a Christian non profit organization that has multiple programs for the poor, homeless, veterans, elderly and other vulnerable populations.  They operate over two dozen Senior Care centers; Westchester being one of them.  We will have a program of Christmas carols, a short message and then distribution of blankets and interaction with the residents on Dec 8.  More details will be available later. 

Thank you and may the Lord bless you,
