The Doll Knitters are celebrating the milestone of 40,000 dolls.
The purpose of our Doll Knitters team is to share God’s love with all children around the world, bringing them hope and joy in the form of beautifully knitted dolls.
Starting in 2005 with 6 ladies, with Mary Neilsen taking on the leadership role. Their group has grown to 30 plus, all of whom have the passion to love and give to children and others.
Their gifted knitters and crocheters have been given many outlets to use their creativeness. They have expanded to knitting baby blankets, sweaters, hats, mittens and shawls, much of which goes to local needs.
Their total number of dolls knitted at present has surpassed 40,0000, and that is an amazing milestone. The majority of the dolls go to Samaritan’s Purse and some to Agape Hospice, along with teddy bears. Blankets go to the Pregnancy Care Center along with hats and sweaters. We have also given items to the Sonshine Centre.
Please continue to pray for them.
