Monthly Projects

2016 Monthly Projects

January/February   Baby (0-24 months)  and Toddler (2-4/5 T) needs for the Sacred Shawl Society and for the nurse at the Martin Clinic for distribution to patients.  Those not working on babies can be planning/working on gifts for the Easter party.  We don’t have a date for the party yet but Easter is March 27.

February/March   Baby and Toddler needs still ongoing and Wanblee Easter Party gifts and donations for food.

April/May  Summer clothing for the kids in both Wanblee and the Sacred Shawl Society.  Non-sewers, garage sales are starting, yippee!!

June/July   Lot of variety for these two months….. for the sewers make pencil cases, back packs for younger children, summer pj’s, pillows and pillowcases….. For the shoppers look for good, gently used school clothing, coats, hoodies, etc. at summer garage sales and start watching for sales, usually in July, for socks, underwear, shoes and school supplies.

August/September   Making warm items for the cold months ahead including hats, mittens, scarves, blankets, sleep sacks, slipper socks, warm school clothing, winter pj’s, etc. for both the shelter and Wanblee.

October/ November    Use these two months to sew/craft and shop for Christmas gifts for the party.  Many will still be working on the warm hats and mittens to send as gifts and the doll project should be going in full swing.   Shipping will start after Thanksgiving.

December       Finish up Christmas projects and ship boxes to arrive at least a week before the party, date still undecided but probably December 10 or 17.  Take a well deserved break and enjoy the holidays with your families and friends!

Also comfort bags for kids in crisis.
