Our volunteers are making a difference

Our shrug and shawl coordinators are making a difference.  Not only are they making shrugs and shawls for their local RMD House moms but they are working hard to get the knit and crochet community involved.  We recently shipped many Stay Strong Totes to two of our coordinators and they were kind enough to share photos with us.

If you’d like to donate shrugs/shawls to the Denver, Colorado RMD House, Carole can be reached at AmmieKnits@aol.com.

Linda is our coordinator for Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Linda can be reached at lovenstitches2016@gmail.com.

Thank you ladies for joining our mission and helping to send a little love to moms who really need it.

Carole, Linda and the friends who visited both RMD Houses all were in agreement – the work that goes on every day in RMD Houses is amazing.  They provide a much needed escape for families going through an incredibly difficult time.   They create a comforting environment and a little sense of normalcy when families really need some support.  Volunteers are always needed as are wishlist items.

You can also pitch in by bringing our Stay Strong Tote bags to your local Ronald McDonald House or get your knit/crochet group involved and ship shawls directly to us.  We will include your handmade gift in a delivery being made to a house we’ve already established contact with.

But you don’t need to knit or crochet to help.  Items for our totes can be donated  through our Amazon wishlist.  When you make a donation, your name will be included on a handwritten card that we will include in a Stay Strong Tote.  You can also add your own message when donating either through Amazon or our paypal account.  Weaving-wellness.org

We are proud of how our community is growing – and grateful for ladies like Carole and Linda who believe in our mission.  Together we are making a difference.

  1. Just finished my 2nd shrug—the 2nd one is definitely better….They are fun and fast to knit. Will try to get pictures one of these days….

  2. I just finished my first one. It’s kind of big, but that’s my fault. I knit loose , so I should have used a smaller needle.
    Learning from experience.

    1. I noticed my gauge is a lot looser with big needles. It’ll be easier to figure out what not to do on your second one. Trust me! However, these knit up so quickly the experimenting is fun. And once you know what works for you the real fun begins and you can be creative with color and textures. Thanks so much for your effort Linda – and all your help!!
