One of Our Favorite Projects......

While the Binky Patrol SC is all about helping children in need, we do on occasion, have the opportunity to provide items for a happy situation.  Our twin project has been just that and has brought so much more joy than we could possibly provide.  A few weeks ago, I was privileged to attend the baby shower for this young mother.  The couple has six (6) - yes I said 6 children between them and with the birth of the twins they will have 8!  Yep - I said 8 kids.  But --- they handle this with grace and joy and the family is a pleasure to spend time with.  I feel so thankful to have met them.  They are hard working people who take excellent care of their children and are very excited to welcome their two new boys.  They are already named and have been for some time - Caleb and Griffin - family names.  There are so many people who are anticipating this birth and these babies will be welcomed with much love and affection.  But - we all know the stress of multiple births, the work, the cost, and so much more.  So -- this is why we get involved where we can.  This is a joyous project and one we dearly love!

Helping with happy occasions such as this makes what we do all the more rewarding and brings us much more than what we offer.  If you would like to help, email us at or visit our web site at

We are ready for Fall and Winter!!!

Karen Johnson Designs Donation
We were so fortunate to receive a fabulous fabric donation last week from Karen Johnson Designs here in Columbia!  This is just one picture of the wonderful colorful awesome fabrics donated by Karen.  She is a local sewing instructor and these beautiful pieces were from a fabric shop she used to own.  When I look at these I see blankets, applique, bibs, clothing, pillow cases and more!  This donation has given us just the boost we needed to start preparing for the winter ahead.  Karen - I can't thank you enough.  This colorful array of fabrics not only supplies us but it inspires us to create in every way possible.  Please watch our Flickr photo stream at and follow these donations as they "become" as in the Velveteen Rabbit - they will become favorite loved items by children all over our state and more!  Let us know if you want to get involved - email us at or visit our web site at

Wonderful Thank you......

Daybreak Crisis Pregnancy Center
We received the most wonderful Thank-you email from the Daybreak Crisis Pregnancy Center last week.  It is always wonderful to know that items we send are received and useful.  Daybreak is one of our newer recipients and we are so happy to be working with them to help them help young mothers-to-be in crisis.  This mission is very important to us as is everything we do.

Helping children in need is very simple and there is a program or group for every talent and desire.  A list of our recipient groups is located on our web page at as well as popular patterns and projects we work on.  But, if you have something that is a special talent or idea that you would like to provide, please do let us know.  We are always open to new ways to provide items for our kids.  Our ultimate goal is to help each other do the things we love to do and use those gifts to help babies and children in need.  We aren't worried about perfection - just creating from the heart.

If you would like to get involved or know of a need in our area, please contact us at
