Loving hands, warm hearts: Craft fair set

MT. COMFORT — A craft fair is set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 11 at Amity United Methodist Church, 6042 W. County Road 100N, Greenfield. Among the items for sale will be local honey, as well as honey soap and lotion; fishing lures; and the work of a wood cutter.

Proceeds from the craft fair go toward materials for blankets made by the church’s Hands of Love ministry.

The Hands of Love group has handed out more than 450 adult blankets since the ministry began two years ago. Many are given away at cancer centers at Hancock Regional Hospital and Community Hospital. Others have gone to ALS patients, those who’ve had a stroke, people receiving dialysis, veterans, food banks and people without visitors in nursing homes. The group also has given out 125 baby blankets, many of them for a baby shower at the women’s prison.

Hands of Love got started with a grant from the church and has the annual craft fair to raise money for fleece and yarn, stretching those dollars by waiting for sales and using coupons.
