FCE Blanket Making
quilts/blankets are all homemade with tender loving care, which is
another way of saying “Someone loves you”. Ours is a group of
women who meet about once a month at the Agricultural History Farm
Park on 18410 Muncaster Rd. in Derwood. We knit, crochet, cut and
sew material and have a wonderful time meeting old and making new
friends. (calendar) Our yarn and fabric has been generously donated by
individuals. Crafters use their own imaginations in creating the
quilts, which makes each one unique. So far we’ve made over 12,000
blankets. In addition, we’ve made approximately 4,000 newborn and
distributed to shelters, such as Stepping Stones, the Betty Ann
Krahnke Shelter for victims of domestic violence, Heart and Home,
local hospitals, including Holy Cross, Montgomery General, Shady
Grove, NIH Ronald McDonald House and Children’s National Medical
include batting for the sewn blankets and sewing machine repairs; we
have been blessed with financial donations to FCE for this project.

Guidelines for Blanket Making
EVERYONE to our meetings. Some people come and stay all day, some
only long enough to drop off a finished quilt and pick up more
supplies. Some women work behind the scenes doing their work
quietly on their own and sending the finished blanket with a friend.
So come on over, bring a sandwich and a smile and we will supply
materials, a drink, and dessert.
