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

 

Volunteers from Cowichan Bay Nel and her friend Henny get together almost every Monday to work on stuff for Canada Comforts Society. Everything from bandages, to diapers, to knitted slippers and blankets. Nel is rolling bandages on this handy rolling tool that a friend made for her and Henny is doing the ripping/prepping of the material to be rolled.
So far in 2021 they have made:
– 60 dozen diapers
– 5 boxes of bandages
– 19 pairs of knitted slippers
– 36 pairs of baby booties
– 9 knitted large blankets (for a single bed)
– 3 knitted baby blankets
Way to go ladies!

The Capital City Yacht Club Sewing Group formed in 2019 to sew for Canada Comforts Society.

Prior to the onset of COVID19 social distancing mandate the group sewed 95 pairs of shorts and 50 face masks. Unfortunately, they are unable to meet as a group but Dianne Walker continues to sew shorts and has made 180 pairs on her own since last March! The group is keen to meet and sew for CCS once again when it is safe.

A big thank you to Margaret Johnson of Comox, seen here with her 1000 knitted bear, way to go Margaret!


September 2020 Thank you Norgarden Knitters

See all those happy ” little bear faces”? Soon they will be causing children in a different country to share those smiles- except this time- squeals will be heard along with the smiles! This was only part of the beautiful gifts that came our way.
Keep up the great work- and we will keep sharing your gifts with others!

 


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.
