New Year, New Hopes

In this new year, it is our desire to continue bringing hope, healing, and peace to people in need in our own neighborhoods and around the world. Our collective work of stitching hats, mittens, scarves, blankets, and Peace Pals truly makes a difference in others' lives. This difference is the reason we knit, crochet, weave, and quilt. It is the reason we visit our homeless neighbors with a handshake and warm hat in hand; we fill our suitcases for an overseas trip to bring sleeping mats and Peace Pals to children living in villages and hospitals in need of comfort. The difference made is a tangible sense of hope and dignity that each individual receives when they get an item you've stitched for them.
