THE NEEDLE ARTS MINISTRY If you would be willing to sew a receiving blanket, knit a cap for a newborn, or make a prayer shawl we could use your help !!!

We would love to have you join us - but if you are unable to we would really appreciate your help in keeping a supply available of blankets, caps and prayer shawls for our outreaches. We have committed to six receiving blankets to each hospital each month, we try to take as many baby caps as possible and we like to have a supply of prayer shawls on hand for Fr. Dale and Deacon Bud to have when needed. Thanks to several very generous donations we have flannel available and cut for anyone who would be willing to sew a receiving blanket.If you are interested in sewing a blanket please contact Debbi Smith, 623-8791. For information on how to make any of our projects please contact either Debbi Smith, Elly Mulkey or Lynne Hooper. We also provide prayer blankets when requested. These are the fleece blankets with the cut strips that parishioners tie knots in and say a prayer for the person for whom it is intended. If you know of someone in need of such a blanket ,please contact Debbi Smith. We also now have a fund set up in the office to help purchase flannel and yarn for our blankets, shawls and caps. Just write Needle Arts in the memo line and drop the check in the offering plate or by the office.Thank you, St. Andrew's Needle Arts Ministry.
