Fort Wayne Bethel's “Stitch & Chatter” group shares their gifts


Fort Wayne Bethel's “Stitch & Chatter” group shares their gifts of sewing, knitting and crocheting as an outreach – crocheting or knitting over 200 spiral pink scarves for breast cancer survivors; making sleeping mats for the homeless, fashioned out of plastic grocery bags; and creating handmade baby hats and blankets to be donated to local hospitals for stillborn babies. All projects are completed in the hope that each recipient will know God’s love and comfort through these gifts (which have been blessed and prayed over by Pastor Brian Campbell and the “Stitch & Chatter” ladies).

Their most recent project involved sewing and stuffing over 400 fleece bears, made in two sizes, which were given to cancer survivors who walked in the 2014 “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” Walk in Fort Wayne, and to women who have experienced other forms of cancer. Each of the bears came decked out with a button saying, “With God Everything is BEARable!”
