Baby Blankets

April 2011 Update: The Missions Committee would like to start up the baby blanket ministry again. This is a ministry that was started many years ago by Barbara Campanale. Barbara saw babies going home from the hospital in a diaper and wrapped in a towel. She wanted mothers to have something special and warm to take their babies home in so she started this ministry.

The blanket bundles (a onesie, socks and diaper are wrapped in the blanket) will be assembled and delivered to nearby hospitals for newborns. The blankets are cut out and finished around the edges by sewing or crocheting. If you don't know how to sew or crochet, you can learn how or cut out blankets and assemble bundles once the blankets are finished. Please sign up on the sheet located on the table near the Fellowship Hall if you are interested in helping with this ministry, or you can contact Sue Johnston at 703-789-2196 or by email at davidandsue9568 at comcast dot net .
