Made With Love is a crafting group that makes handmade goods and tied fleece blankets, that not only provide comfort but essential warmth, to give to students, teachers, families, and pet rescues. Special gifts are shared with Meals on Wheels and Respite Care during the holidays, and with veterans on Veterans Day to show gratitude for their service. In the spirit of sharing their crafts, and passing on the act of caring and giving with the younger generation, the group has hosted workshops with students from both Charleston Collegiate and Haut Gap Middle School. Kiawah Cares provides a room for them to work and funds many of their crafting supplies.
Most of the crafts created by Made With Love require no experience, just a giving heart and a little time. Group leader Donna Porritt can show you how to make the no-sew tied fleece blankets, cut fabric and organize supplies. Men and women are invited to join!
Join us for Fleece Fridays, most Fridays at 10 a.m. at Beachwalker Center (23 Beachwalker Drive). Fleece Fridays will not occur on May 24 or 31 due to the Memorial Day holiday.
