Quilt club sews lifelong friendships


Northville, Michigan - Carole Jean Stockhausen knows a newborn will be swaddled in fabric sewn by her hand.

Donated quilts warm the hearts of Northville's Hands All Around members, the group Stockhausen helped found 24 years ago.

Along the way, the 24 members began stitching charity into their creative endeavors. They've donated time and materials to Mill Race Historical Village, the Northville District Library and the Gilda Radner House.

Their most recent cause is the Corner Health Center in Ypsilanti where mothers ages 12-21 can earn rewards — like a handmade quilt — for practicing proper health care. The handmade blankets were a hit when they donated 29 two years ago.

Hands All Around members will reconvene next week to sew another pile of crib-size quilts to pass on to a new family.
