Blankets Homemade by The Service League of Greenville

Our colorful, hand-tied fleece blankets continue to be popular with both the makers and the recipients.  Blanket workshops were held in February and March and many members worked on blankets at home.

Fleece material was cut to appropriate lap-blanket size and heartwarming labels were pre-sewn onto one layer of each blanket.

Plenty of fun and discussion was shared as the edges of the two layers of the blanket were fringe-cut and hand-tied together.

Blankets were then rolled and tied with bows that held book-marker style cards explaining a bit about what THE SERVICE LEAGUE OF GREENVILLE does.

Hospital Activities Chair Cassie Causey, assisted by SLG member Brenda Whichard,  delivered the blankets to Vidant Health’s Office of Patient and Family Experience.  Leslie Spencer and Erica Janak are always thrilled to have the blankets on hand for patients needing a little boost of warmth and sunshine during their stay at Vidant Health Center.

From Cassie:

Thank you ladies for supporting SLG Hospital Activities Committee and helping to share some love with patients at Vidant.

Our thanks to Cassie and her helpers for organizing these workshops and all the ladies who participated in making them both rewarding and just so much fun!
