Event Name: Knit/Crochet Grief Blankets
Department: Default
Date: Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Time: 5:30 PM-8:00 PM
Location: Kenton County Extension Service
Description: A group of St. Elizabeth associates and community members have been working diligently to create handmade blankets in order to donate them to the St. Elizabeth Family Birth Place. These blankets, grief blankets, are given to those families who, unfortunately, will experience a miscarriage or stillbirth.

The group started when Linda Riggs, a St. Elizabeth Edgewood Nurse, was approached by Sister Augusta with a need for grief blankets. Linda began crocheting in her free time – at softball practices, waiting at the body shop, etc. Without fail, she was continually approached and asked why she was always crocheting. And, without fail, when telling her story, strangers and friends found themselves compelled to donate their time and creative talents.
