Hi ya'll! I'm Kristy from Hopeful Threads. Dona invited me over to share a little about what I do and I jumped at the chance! :) I love what World of Charity Stitching stands for and am excited to join our efforts by spreading the word about each other!
Hopeful Threads is my charity sewing blog. Sewing is something I have grown to love more and more since I began regularly sewing for others. That started for me about 4 years ago when a dear friend of mine was on her journey to adopt her precious son from China. While following along with the process, I learned of the specific needs of a very special group of children. It just happened to be things I could make for them, and so I did, and this pile of goodies traveled with my friend to China when she went to bring her son home!
I continued to sew and donate for a variety of needs, but in looking to expand the outreach, and have others to regularly sew with, I started my blog, Hopeful Threads, in January 2011.
This past year we have sewn so many wonderful things for others near and far!
Our contributions have included pillowcases for foster children through our local DCS, sundresses inspired by the outreach of Dress A Girl Around the World, activity totes for Children's Hospital, cloth diaper covers for an organization in Cambodia and baby layette for a crisis pregnancy center. It's such a blessing to have others jump in and use their gifts and talents to help meet these needs! It's also a HUGE blessing to see the precious faces that joyfully accept our gifts!
We'd love to have you drop by and learn more about us, and feel free to follow along!
Thanks again for sharing your space Dona!
Because every stitch matters!
