Scarves with Heart
What Is Scarves with Heart?
This year, in preparation for the winter season and in time for Martinmas, we will all come together and do something that is truly hand-made and heart-warming by creating handmade scarves during the fall and then planting them all over town on Saturday, November 5.
“Scarf bombing” is a national movement where people create handmade scarves and place them locally in areas that have a population that could benefit from the donations. Items will be tied to trees and include a note stating, “If you are cold this winter, please take me.”
Like St. Martin, a kind-hearted knight who cut his cloak in two and gave half to a cold beggar, we too can share the warmth of our amazing school community with others.
In Handwork class, students learn the practical arts of knitting, crocheting, and sewing as they create carefully crafted projects that are both beautiful and useful. Scarves with Heart is a wonderful opportunity for MPCS students and their families to come together to share their love of handwork and create scarves together.
We encourage you to start knitting, crocheting, and sewing at home. All your time on this project counts towards volunteer hours!
