One-of-a-Kind Quilts bring joy to little patients

On December 20, Sheridan Memorial Hospital staff met in the lobby to receive a donation of handmade quilts from a local non-profit, Love in Stitches.  The handmade blankets were specially made for seriously ill children who have to visit the hospital for a variety of reasons.  The Pediatric and Emergency Departments distribute the blankets to their young patients.

Love in Stitches has delivered these soft and cuddly handmade quilts to many throughout our community since 2014.  The collaboration with Sheridan Memorial Hospital has been very successful and appreciated over the years.  The quilters love this project and according to Penny Covalt and Cynthia Whiteman, who made the delivery, “We especially love delivering quilts at Christmas time.  It’s very important for us to give back and support children who are going through a difficult time.  Hopefully, this brings some comfort and joy to those needing care.” 

Love in Stitches plans to continue the project.  Penny said, “As long as there are kids in need and we can sew, we’ll make our deliveries, with this batch we have given over 115 quilts to Sheridan Memorial Hospital—it’s a great partnership!”
