JoAnn's Coming to McKinney

For those who have not heard, JoAnn's craft & fabric store is inching its way north and will be in McKinney by August. They will be housed in the old Circuit City store which is located off 75 & 380.

Hooray for more options closer to home!

The Weekly Stitch

Hello there!

Just two quick things in addition to our regular weekly update! One, we have been blessed with a new donation of yarn and fabric - 30 whole banker's boxes worth!! Wow doesn't even come close to expressing how exciting this is for our group. Just think of all the hats, scarves and blankets we can make with the yarn. And, for those of you who sew - just think about having free fabric to use to make baby/kids' quilts, rice warmer bags, and head scarves! For any of you who do sew, please let me know if you would like some of the fabric. Same goes for the yarn. Our storage resources are going to be stretched to the limits with this new donation so I would like to pass it out to all of you ladies as quickly as possible!

Secondly, this week is Valentine's Day so bring a sweet treat to share to our meetings - why should the kids get to have all of the fun at their parties?!?

Meetings this week

·   Tuesday - 10AM in the Hospitality Room at FBC McKinney
·   Wednesday - 6:15 in the Fireside Room at FBC McKinney

Current Projects

·   Chemo caps and scarves - for adults, kids and babies. To be donated to Texas Oncology McKinney, Medical City Children's Hospital, and UT Southwestern Moncrief Center.
·   Blankets and knitted/crocheted toys - to be donated to Medical City Children's Hospital.
·   Bereavement Garments for Medical City Children's Hospital Labor & Delivery Department: This is a brand new project that will be so meaningful to the parents of these little babies who passed away. We will be making hats, gowns and blankets all in the 2 pound or less size. Let me know if you need patterns as well as examples of what they are looking for.

God bless each of you!
