Beautiful Bounty

Katie's Comforters Guild has been blessed with bounty at the end of April - early May. Here is an update on what has been happening...

Our friends Mary & Briana Ryan have  been busy. They donated these cozy, double-layered fleece blankets:

Our friend, Norma Hutsell, a senior citizen in Kansas (mother of guild member Maribeth Hinderer) crocheted these two for us:
It's hard to see in this photo, but the one on the left was made with camouflage yarn

and dear Luclie & Noble Nilsen delivered 29 new blankets and quilts last week:
Thanks to each of you for your generous giving of time, talent and materials!

Our friend Michelle Ferris has also been busy spreading the word in an original and effective way. She sent out the following letter:
Hello, and thank you all for being interested in making blankets for Katie’s Comforters Guild at Seattle Children’s! More information about the guild can be found on its blog: I have quilt kits ready – fabric for backing and tops, and some batting and binding already made if you want it. I’ve put together a little flyer about this project, with links to tutorials and information. Please let me know if you have any questions, or need any pointers. I’m happy to drop kits off within the NE Seattle area, or you can pick one up at my house in Wedgwood. Feel free to forward this email to anyone you think might be interested in helping out.
Thank you again!
Michelle Farris
What an awesome idea - and she is getting a positive response! If you would like to be part of Michelle's group, please contact her at the email address above, or leave a comment here or on our facebook page.
Thank you, Michelle!

Lastly, this coming Friday at 11:30, the annual Guild Luncheon will be held at the Westin in Seattle. If you haven't sent in your reservation, please call the Guild Association office as soon as possible. I hope to see you there
