It all started with social media. Laura Bozell joined a community of cross stitchers on Facebook. In October 2015, Fae Kuhn of Ephrata, Pennsylvania hosted a cross stitching retreat in Hershey, PA for cross stitchers from around the globe. They came together for a weekend of stitching, fellowship, and fun.
One activity of the retreat involved raising funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central PA. Fae asked one of the group's favorite designers, Ursula Michael of Rhode Island, to create a design that she could stitch and present to the House (along with the raised funds) as a remembrance of the group and the weekend's event.
This sparked the idea for others in the stitching community to stitch the same design for every Ronald McDonald House and Family Room around the world.
This week Laura Bozell of Rocky River presented the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland with our own cross stitched piece to hang at the House. Laura says its "a token of appreciation for all the good you provide to children and families in time of great need."
Thank you, Laura, and all the cross stitchers who are sharing their love with Ronald McDonald Houses around the world.
