Thanks for your service

Take time to remember our veterans and our soldiers currently serving in the military.  Without their sacrifice, our country couldn't really be free.

For the Love of Blankets

Audrey Blake and Sue Charles (Assistance League), Wendy Petko (The Birthing Project), Carol Bly and Robyne Cortes (Craft 4 Change) holding up some of the 46 baby blankets dontated to The Birthing Project, Sacramento.
Recently, Craft 4 Change was honored to attend the Assistance League Volunteer Tea, along with other volunteer groups in the area.  There were representatives from various charities, senior living apartments, knitting groups, and sewing guilds in addition to us. 

Various projects were displayed, pictures taken and lots of goodies to eat.  We were treated to a concert by a local school choir, lots of thank yous, and an informative presentation by Wendy Petko of The Birthing Project.  She gave us an overview of her organization along with a slide show.  Craft 4 Change presented the 46 baby blankets to Wendy, who had no idea that this was going to happen.  It was a wonderful feeling and very heartwarming to see her face when we told her that the blankets that we brought were for her organization.  She was so surprised!

This couldn't have happened without YOU, our loyal and generous crafters.  Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

We will be taking a break for a month or two, but will be back "changing lives" again soon.  Until then, keep following us on Facebook.

Blessings ~~ Robyne
