You can serve others through Leigh's Blankies!

First I have to apologize, it's been a long time since you've heard from me on this blog! We have been BUSY making and distributing blankies. Now it's time to update you on what's been going on!!
I'm so excited to share with you that a local preschool, Ladybug Learning Club, has asked to fundraise for us and they are including the little preschoolers in the process! Last month, they had each student bring their own blankie to school.  The teachers talked to them about the security and comfort their own blankie brings to each of them.  And that many children who are in need or are hurting could use the comfort of a blankie and the news that God loves them! Ladybug has a drop off station for fabric, thread and other sewing materials. They will be collecting materials all year long! Thank you God for this blessing!
Another way we are seeing others serve children is through our take home kits! Many, many people are now sewing Leigh's Blankies from home.  And even having their own sewing parties!
One sweet friend, Kristina Stansbury, wanted to share her own experience as she hosted her own sew party! I'm so thankful for her servant heart, as she not only hosted , but taught these ladies how to sew!
"Ladybug preschool has chosen Leigh's Blankies as a service project this year. One of the parents at the school is a friend of mine and mentioned she'd love to help if she knew how to sew. Another friend, who has been following Leigh's Blankies, wanted to learn how to use her sewing machine and make blankies too. Using a kit provided by Leigh's Blankies these ladies learned how to sew and created blankies. What joy to fellowship while sewing these snugly blankies for a child in need."
