Sunday, March 4th
2:00 - 4:00 pm
First Monthly Session of
Piecing for Peace

Announcing new monthly project sessions for like-minded people interested in promoting wellness in our community & peace in our own lives. The only skills required are a willingness to help & the desire to be kind - to your self & others.

Over the past year, members of the community have made knitted & crocheted hats for the babies at Yale New Haven.  Others have donated both time & money to the Bear Project, for kids in crisis.

Our next project involves making small, colorful covers for the incubators in the NICU units, beginning with Yale New Haven Hospital, to keep the harsh overhead lights from disturbing the infants.  They also brighten up a stressful environment & follow the children home, when they become well enough to leave.

If you know how to sew, great! If not, there is something for everyone to do ... cutting fabric, ironing seams, even ripping out mistakes!  And if you'd like to learn to sew, this project is all about straight lines to practice on! 

Drop in any time between 2:00 & 4:00 and we'll put you to work. This is a free event but we welcome donations of cotton fabric, thread, seam rippers or even cash toward supplies & overhead.

Feel free to bring your own sewing machine & tools.

The Bear Project
Books & Company, along with our generous customers, have covered the cost of these brand-new bears.  Customer friends have lovingly hand-crafted scarves to dress up the bears, making each one unique. In the past year, more than 400 bears have been distributed to children in need through local organizations such as Ronald McDonald House and IRIS, as well as the Hamden Police Department.
