Common Thread Celebrates Over 92,000 Items Donated!

June 27th, 2018

On June 25th the Common Thread Circle celebrated with a special cake for everyone attending our Monday meeting.  We have now delivered over 92,800 handcrafted items to Houston area hospitals since we started our Hospital Project in 2008!  This includes not only our heart-shaped comfort pillows, used by hospital patients to ease coughing during respiration therapy and to cushion surgical areas, but also our “little critters” (stuffed animals) for the children’s wards, our knitted and crocheted hats and scarves for cancer patients, and the many other items shown on this website.

 

Common Thread Circle Shares in World Doll Day Project

June 21st, 2018

The Texas Association of Original Doll Artists (TAODA), Girl Scouts of San Jacinto, and The Common Thread Circle combined forces to create a program of making and sharing dolls with Girl Scouts and children in Houston area hospitals.

45 Girl Scouts participated in this program which took place on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the Girl Scout building in Houston.  TAODA members designed and made over 150 different unstuffed pillow dolls.  Each Girl Scout was allowed to choose 3 dolls to stuff. The girls would keep one doll and donate the other two dolls.

The Common Thread Circle provided the fiber fill for this project.  Common Thread members closed the donated pillow dolls and will distribute them to patients in Houston area hospitals.

World Doll Day is celebrated on the second Saturday every June.  Common Thread gives thanks to the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto and TAODA for working with us to make this world a better place.
