Help MCC warm hearts around the world by collecting 6,500 comforters for distribution to people displaced by disaster or conflict.

 

JOIN US for Great Winter Warm-up happening in events throughout Saskatchewan on January 18, 2020.

Join us for a day of...

COMFORTER MAKING for MCC's international relief efforts when disaster or conflict displace people from their homes and community. Read how relief kits and comforters get to where they're most needed.

FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY - Whether you're a seasoned sewist or new to the world of comforter making, there will be an opportunity for people of all ages and skill levels to get involved. 

Young children are welcome! This is a family-friendly event and we encourage participation by children of all ages. Comforter-tying is recommended for children aged 10 and older. Comforter-tying involves using a needle and crochet cotton and not all children may find the task easy. Colouring pages will be available however, child-minders are not available at this event. 

LIGHT REFRESHMENTS - Tea, coffee and treats. 

Join us for a full day of comforter making, food and fun while we raise blankets and funds for families and vulnerable populations who have been uprooted by disaster and conflict. Read about MCC's disaster response here.
