MSW CCW welcomes everyone who want to make blankets for the homeless on this one day a year. We are a diverse group of blanket makers – all ages and all sizes! Families, Students needing service hours, Scout Troops, Grandmas and grandpas, Moms and Dads, Business People, Students, Sports Groups and Clubs, Girlfriend Groups, Teachers, Public servants, and YOU – united by our shared faith in a loving God and in our mission of doing something good for those in need.

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! www.blanketofdreams.com
