We blanket the children of our community with love.
Thank you to all our volunteers and donors who’ve made this group so successful. We’re still here because of you.
We haven’t received the go-ahead to move into the new ARTS After School Building but we hear it’ll be very soon. We can’t wait. It’s going to be so nice.
Our play days are always on Saturdays from 9 – 3 with a lunch break from 11:30 – 12:30.
Unless otherwise informed, it’s bring-your-own brown bag lunch and beverage.
We are not a closed sit-n-stitch. We’re a community-based group of volunteers, who enjoy sewing blankets for children who need a little extra warmth in their lives. We do not ask for dues and we’re usually able to provide everything you need to make these blankets and quilts. Thanks to our donors, we’ve received enough fabric, batting, and sewing notions to continue our mission.
Our next play day is:
February 6, 2016 at:
Play Big Therapy & Play Center
4500 W Shannon Lakes
(Off Thomasville, then Velda Dairy Road. Turn right on Shannon Lakes and then turn into the shopping center on the right.
I’m sorry I don’t know the suite number, so please look for the suite directly opposite the marquee at the entrance.)
On this day we’re making weighted therapy blankets. PlayBig has given us the stats for ten customized blankets intended for ten special kids. This is more than we can accomplish in a day. If you can make it on Saturday, or can stop by to pick up the fabric and poly-pellets to make a therapy blanket at home, or with your sit-n-stitch group, please RSVP to Judy Rainbrook at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m still under the weather, so might not be there. Because this project is different from any other we’ve done before, Judy does need an RSVP so she can formulate a plan.
This will also be a good time to drop off finished blankets for HOPE Community kids, or to pick up a kit to work on at home (or with your sit-n-stitch). We have two quilts that are sandwiched and ready for quilting or tying. For these two you’ll need to provide the thread or embroidery floss as ours it still packed.
The rest of our 2016 play days are:

Apr 2 & 16
May 7 & 21
Jun 4 & 18
