Many of you know that the prayer shawl group knits and crochets prayer shawls for people in our congregation and community that need our prayers. But we also make white baptism blankets for our babies and children who are baptized as well as red confirmation scarves for our confirmation class.

For over 10 years we’ve also been donating blankets to Project Linus, a national organization with local chapters that collects and distributes blankets to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug. We meet them twice a year for a blanket “hand-off”.

In April we met Project Linus Representative Mary Lou and donated 69 blankets. Mary Lou added 5 of her own prayer shawls to our prayer shawl group!

Anyone who would like to join us in knitting is most welcome. In addition to the regular knitters who come on Wednesdays, we have at least seven off site knitters. Any questions please call Marianna Sherman at 914-737-8294 or Fran Schiel at 914-245-5396.

Check the calendar for our meetings — Our next meetings are June 6 at 9:30am and May 16 and June 20 at 10:30am
