The women of Angels Making Blankets in Powell have made fleece blankets for us for four years. They have steadily increased from 5 to 30 members and from 65 to 663 blankets made annually since 2017. To produce this impressive progress over the years, they have refined their techniques, formed different crews to cut fringe and sew on labels, and decided to meet more often for group work parties.
COVID changed the way the group met but didn’t slow them down. Since March 2020, the Angels have held Zoom tying parties, made blankets at garden parties and gatherings in the park, worked in masks at the MVOB workshop and worked individually at home. By the end of 2020, they had made a total of 1,153 blankets and were making plans for 2021!
We are extremely grateful for dedicated AMB leader, Marilyn, her team of hard-working Blanket Angels.
