Featured Volunteer Cherie Warner
I’m Cherie Warner, and I live with my husband, two college-aged sons and four cats in Trenton, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit). I work at my church as the Children’s Choir Director and Assistant to the Music Director. I love to sing in various choirs there, and play the flute every now and then, as well. Relatives taught me how to knit and crochet when I was a little girl, so I’ve been at it for many years now! I also enjoy sewing, cross stitch embroidery, reading and gardening.
I joined The Preemie Project a little over a year ago. I had been looking around on-line for a place to donate baby items because I thought that making baby things would be a great way to use up the ever growing piles of yarn in the basement. Little did I know that it would be so much fun, and rewarding, to make these little baby things! And, no, I haven’t even made a dent in the yarn stash—I keep buying more!
Crafting for The Preemie Project is the perfect therapy for me. I get the joy of making the items, and the knowledge that the things I make are so appreciated by the families who receive them.
