Blankets, Blankets, Blankets... Thank You, Polartec!

Getting ready to deliver 200 blankets to Z Mansion, Tucson, for the homeless.  Each blanket is a generous 70"x90" size, and they are made of Polartec fleece.  In April, 2010, Polartec donated 750 yards of fleece to Holy Needles.  This gave Holy Needles an opportunity to expand it's ministry, to create more items for more people!  Among the items are blankets.  Blankets for homeless, for chemotherapy patients, for homebound, as well as for newborns. 

 Labels were donated to Holy Needles by Casas Church, and are sewn to the blankets.

Polartec fleece blanket for the homeless, labeled, rolled and held together with a crocheted band.

53 Adorable Fleece Bears Created!

Carol Smith was recently involved with creating 53 black fleece bears, which were delivered to an orphanage in Hermosilia, Mexico through Caring Ministries, in time for Christmas!

 Carol displays 2 of the teddy bears she created from our donation from Polartec fleece.

These adorable little bears will bring smiles to some special children!
