We are so grateful to all the people that bring us their wonderful creations.

Marion Gieg from Powassan Ontario sent us 160 baby tops. We are so very grateful to volunteers from all over the country that send hand made items to Canada Comforts Society.

 

Volunteers from Red Deer Alberta Compassionate Resource Warehouse received a lovely letter and photo from some volunteers in Red Deer Alberta. They sent 157 dolls crafted by ladies in central Alberta. The photo is of a tea that included a celebration for Ruth Moore (front right, Ruth is 94 and has macular degeneration). Ruth has completed knitting 40000 of the dolls! Back row, is Brenda Dowell, and Sheila Brandner who stuff and finish many of Ruth’s dolls. Missing from the photo is Ruth’s daughter who partially completes all of the dolls now.
It was so nice to meet the ladies from St John’s Church, Cobble Hill. Mary, Elizabeth, Bonnie Jean and Judith went on a road trip to visit our workshop at the Juan de Fuca 55 Plus Seniors Centre. The ladies sew bags, knit teddies and dish cloths and send us empty perception bottles.

 

Sharon from Kitimat and Cheryl from Maple Ridge brought us blankets and knitted toques.
Marg has knitted lots of colourful bears. The ladies at the workshop will add faces.
Heather and Rita (shown here) along with Tereasa and Stephi work hard creating these items for us. They had 64 fish and chip sweaters with hats as well as 37 touches and 5 knitted blankets
