Bringing Hope 2 Others: Blankets Needed | Hat and Blanket Drive | Nancy's Corner | Sewing With Nancy | Nancy ZiemanKaren told Nancy that many babies were dying of hypothermia. When they asked a birthing center, and others, how they could help, they were told that each birthing center, hospital, and clinic delivering babies has a need for blankets, hats, and booties. These basic supplies are needed for mothers to take home and keep their babies warm.

    Awesome! a way to use all the leftover pieces of fleece from quilting/sewing projects.

    This is a very nice idea, but why are these project always aimed at the people overseas? We have so many needy people here in the United States.

    Very cute idea, My only thought is right now we have so many people right here in the United States and especially Texas that need our help why would you want to do something for a far flung country? You have so much influence in our Sewing world, why not organize something for our own citizens FIRST!

      Matthew 5:45 NIV “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

      Victims of Hurricane Harvey in TX, LA, & MS have both immediate and long-term needs. A list of reputable organizations who work on the ground providing immediate needs during domestic disasters can be linked to from http://missionoflove.org/. There will also be a plan for donating quilts in the future; stay tuned 🙂

    I’ll help. I just finished 4 quilts for the Bring Hope to Others and forwarded them to Nancy Zieman for the September expo. I totally used leftover pieces and orphan blocks. I agree it was an awesome and rewarding way to used from my stash. I really felt sooo good to do that. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Let’s show Nancy our love and make as many quilts and hats as we can to honor her. This is one way we can show her we care. Fire up those sewing machines!

    I have scraps of fleece. Now I know what I want to do with them.

    What a wonderful way to use up scraps. I would like to point out that different crisis need different things. Sewing up a few little heart hats takes up very little time and can mean the difference of living or dying.

    For larger pieces of fabric it is easy to turn a yard of fleece into a Linus blanket for a young hurricane victim.

    This is a very heartwarming project. Those precious smile from those kids upon receiving those hats are just priceless. I happen to work for an online hat shop ( link ), and I might be able to talk to my colleagues on sending some for charity. I will share this post at our office.
