We’ve seen the transformation hundreds of times – people come in thinking they will have an ordinary day. But when they join us and make a blanket or two or three, there is a change in how they feel. The good works, shared experiences, time spent working with your hands– all bring us closer to our highest calling.
Take the first step toward making a difference – join us in making blankets!

Blanket of Dreams is an annual event sponsored by Mary Seat of Wisdom Council of Catholic Women where the community comes together to make blankets for the homeless. No need to know how to sew! Bring some fleece and a pair of scissors and you're ready to go! You'll need 4 yards of fleece to make an adult blanket and 3 yards for a child blanket. If you do sew, please bring your machine and we have lots of fabric to sew! Free refreshments are provided during the day for the blanket makers. Come any time between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Donations of fleece always welcome. Watch for sales on fleece at Hancock Fabrics and JoAnn's Fabrics. Donations of fleece can either be brought the day of or dropped off at Mary Seat of Wisdom. Be sure to label it Blanket of Dreams.
Organize your own group to come!
Feel great while doing good!
