February is Here Again.....

Time sure flies when you are having fun and we definitely do at BPSC!!  Last year was a good one for us and we received so many wonderful donations.  We have also been fortunate enough to gain a sister chapter in the lower part of the state.  Please check out their info below - Melinda King is the Coordinator.  We are so very thankful to have them aboard and we can sure use more hands in SC!!

For the next few months we will be concentrating on a new project and we could sure use more hands to meet our goals.  We will be providing blankets to the Head Start program here in Columbia.  There are approximately 140 children in this center and we would like to send enough for one class at a time until all of the classes have received a blanket.  Each class includes about 20 children.

Now - to make these blankets as similar as possible, we are going to ask that they be fabric and sewn.  Normally we don't make specific requests but in this case we believe it is the best so that the children will all have the same basic blanket.  We would like for them to be one yard, two layers with no batting and be sewn together in pillow case fashion.  They can be tied or quilted/sewn to keep the layers in place.  If you are interested, please email us at  We are very excited about this project and hope you will be too.  I will send more detailed instructions to anyone who would like them.  I will also post pictures as the blankets arrive.  Please think about helping with this project - these are very quick to make and will be greatly appreciated.

Today was a big delivery day for us.  Greg delivered to Palmetto Richland NICU, Daybreak Pregnancy Crisis Center and Transitions in Columbia.  Below are a couple of pics of some of the items.  Thank you so very much to all who helped to make this possible!!  We so appreciate you all.

There is lots to do - let us know if you are interested.  You don't have to be able to sew, knit or crochet to get involved!!
