New Scarves!!

New Scarves!!
Threads of Compassion is a loosely connected group of survivors of sexual violence who desire to offer comfort and support to recent victims. The idea is simple. Anyone whose life has been affected by sexual assault or abuse is welcome to knit or crochet a scarf which in turn will be given to a victim of sexual violence when they enter the hospital for emergency treatment.

Today we bagged a bunch of scarves to give to local ERs and crisis centers. Thank you, Tina Herrin, Carol Trott, Mary Davenport, Chrissi Helle, and Sandy Ahearn, for helping with the folding, tagging, and bagging!

We received hand-made scarf donations from Illinois, Virginia, New York, Florida, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, California, North Carolina, Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, Ohio, and Washington!!

Thank you so much for your time, your thoughtfulness, and generosity.

We received this note from Lisa:

“Thanks for the work you do. I hope this scarf will be of comfort to someone. I have found good support and comfort in my post-recovery life and would like to pass it on!”

And this one from Maureen who knits with a group:

“We put peace and healing in every stitch and hope the recipients will know they are supported and not alone.”

The first four pictures are some really beautiful, unique scarves from Sarah Scott, who runs an Etsy store called Destroy My Sweater. Sarah creates a “line of edgy, one-of-a-kind wearables, made (mostly) of recycled thrift store sweaters”

Thank you, Sarah!!
