DO YOU CroCHET OR KNIT?
We are in constant need of donated baby blankets.
Q: I’m ready to make baby blankets to donate to Rachel's Gift. How do I begin?
A: We are in constant need of handmade baby blankets - either knitted or crocheted. You are welcome to knit/crochet at your own pace. We do not require you to complete a minimum number each month. We offer a baby blanket in each of our keepsake boxes available at our partnering hospitals, serving more than 700 families in 2017, and nearly 1,000 families in 2018. We anticipate a need for at least 1,300 blankets in 2019. However many you are willing to donate, we will gratefully accept!
Blankets donated so far this year:
We ask that you please follow our blanket guidelines as outlined below.
Blanket sizes do not have to be exact, but 21 in. x 21 in. is perfect. If you are having trouble scaling down a beloved pattern, no bigger than 25 in. x 25 in.
Pale blues, pinks, and purples, either by themselves or mixed with white. Mixed pastels that include pink or blue. Baby yarn is preferred for its softness.
