Mask Mate Ear Savers.doc

Mask Mate Ear savers can be knit or crocheted and sit a the back of the head with buttons for your mask ear straps to attach to so that you can wear your mask for longer periods comfortably. Covid may be over but many people still wear masks for comfort when out in public or during cold and flu season. Pattern is easy to follow and quick to make so make one or make several, and use them for a mission project with your society. 


I am Bored Bags

“I’m bored!” These words can be heard from children almost anywhere. When they are heard in a hospital patient room or emergency waiting room, there is little a parent can do. Pre-assembled activity bags handed out by hospital staff can be a blessing to parents. Could this be a project for your society?



A Thoughtful Gift For Shut-ins

Our Saviour LWMLC, Ottawa, put together small photo albums with favourite Bible verses, quotations and pictures/photos and delivered them, along with individual items (e.g. face towels) over Christmas to homebound members of the congregation.
“Due to specific health conditions of some members, instead of sweet treats, we agreed on personal gifts of God’s Word and photos, kept in the album with extra pages to be filled by each homebound member. These albums are very much cherished.” – Tatiana Sabol.


Loom Knit Preemie Hats

Have you heard of Knit Quick knitting looms—reminiscent of spool knitting but much larger?They come in sets of four sizes available at Michaels, Walmart, perhaps other places as well. If you can’t knit but you could spool knit once upon a time, this is a great project. You can make a hat in just two or three hours and it uses up lots of smaller balls of yarn. If they are lighter weight you can use two strands—often different colours—to make hats from preemie size to adult. This would be a great group activity for all ages, and the hats can be donated within your community as a mission service to the less fortunate.


Warm Up the Winter

How many times have you seen school children walking to school without mittens or toques? Elementary schools are grateful for donations of winter items that they can hand out to children over the winter months.  Some of you may knit but for those of you who sew, please have a look at the patterns below. You can do your part to help Warm Up The Winter.
