The Shawl Ministry has learned about a project called Welcome Blanket. Welcome Blanket is working to provide simple 40″ x 40″ blankets to folks being released from the Detention Centers along the border. You can follow this link to learn more about it: www.welcomeblanket.org. We are inviting everyone to participate in knitting, crocheting, quilting or weaving a blanket! No particular patterns are required. There will be a group getting together in August to prep quilting kits that folks can easily sew at home to help out. We will collect all the blankets to ship together by early October. Stay tuned for further details! For more information, contact Amy Patton or Kathryn Warrior.
