Stitching and Sharing
Stitching and Sharing
one of the women’s ministry opportunities at Brushy Fork Baptist Church is Stitching and Sharing. The ladies involved meet the first and third Tuesdays of the month. They spend their time making items for Dress A Girl Around the World and the residents at Swiss Villa Nursing Home in Vevay, Indiana. Their prayer is that the items that they lovingly make will demonstrate the dignity and value of each person that receives them. Each item is made with love and care and with the prayers of blessings of the group and our church together. We are thankful for the opportunity to partner with Dress A Girl and Swiss Villa.
First Tuesday of the month @ 1:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall
Third Tuesday of the month @ 1:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall
Dress A Girl Projects
Our ladies have recently partnered with Dress A Girl and will be shipping 80 dresses to Iowa where they will be sent around the world to girls who may never have had a dress before. Our ladies are so thankful for this ministry and excited to partner with them. They have had great fun sewing the dresses so far and look forward to doing many more in the future. You can help our ladies support Dress A Girl by supporting their periodic fundraisers to buy fabric for the dresses or by joining them and sewing some dresses. We expectantly await what God is going to do with the time and talents our ladies have poured into these dresses. We hope to have some pictures of the dresses that we will be sending here soon.
Nursing Home Projects
Stitching and Sharing likes to make items for the residents in Swiss Villa Nursing Home. The following pictures represent the things that our ladies make for those at Swiss Villa.
The throw capes provide the residents warmth and modesty. They also provide two pockets in the front for easy access to items stored there. The throw capes are made out of polar fleece with different patterns on the material.
The lap blankets are great for the residents at Swiss Villa to throw over them as they sit in their seats or wheel around in the wheelchairs. They can also be used as an extra blanket on their bed in the cold months. Many of the residents proudly display these blankets and enjoy them greatly.
Walker / Wheelchair Bags
The walker bags can either be slung over the front bar of the walker or the resident can attach them by means of the loops that loop around the support bar. Both walkers will provide pockets for the resident to place items that they might need to move with them. These bags are used to decorate the residents walker or wheelchair and provide them some limited pocket space to transport needed items. The residents love to display these items on their walker or wheelchair.
