I love black and white because it is refreshing and clean….

Stay tuned!

This is just the beginning of something I truly pray will continue with all the wonderful people who have giving in their heart. When we give, it brings so much joy to those who receive, and I feel that by giving we create hope of healing.

We want to post links of patterns of  hats from babies to adults. Some will be free and links to others from across the internet that will have to be purchased.

We are in the process of other ladies and men starting their sewing groups for Hats-of-Hope in their areas to donate to. Once they have their information together I will create pages with all of their information.

Stay tuned for more to come…..

This was the beginning….First Coast News

Hello world! You are not alone!!


Well, Hello World seems appropriate for the title, since I am hoping to do just that by introducing ourselves to the WORLD.

What a whirlwind I have been in for a couple of weeks. It all began just sewing with a few friends to an article in The Mayport Mirror, by Bill Austin, and an appearance on First Coast News all in one day.
This new adventure began on a beautiful sunny day, with my friend Sue. We headed to Jo-Ann’s for some new patterns and any special deals we could find with our coupons (which we call kupuns.) Me, being the hat freak that I have become, I found a
vogue hat pattern 8704 I fell in love with…..but was going to wait until it was on sale.

Later that day Sue finally tells me that she purchased the hat as a surprise…of course we had to go back to the store to get material. Along the way we stopped in the Hospice outlet store on Beach Blvd. in Jacksonville to see if there might be any donated material for us to do a practice run with. While we were in the store I noticed a young man with his mother helping her with a wig that had been donated. I went straight to Sue and told her what I wanted to do with the hat pattern-get some ladies together to sew hats for chemo patients. It didn’t take Sue long to put together a write up for me to post about a sewing class in exchange for hats to donate. We figured out that we could get 3 hats from 1 yard of fleece.

The ladies that participated were awesome…everyone donated hats, material, and time. It was a great gathering. Here is the article in the Mirror, by Bill Austin, whom I think did an outstanding job. He was so moved by what all these wonderful ladies were doing he called First Coast News. I can’t seem to download the clip from the news broadcast so I will attach the link to my facebook page.

It is amazing to stand back now and see how God puts His plan into action.
