My name is Marian Leib. I'm a wife, and a mother of 2 children. I live on Long Island NY. I received the care to knit bracelet from Ines Glick. I help Ines with sorting the items that are donated, and I also make items for many of the different causes that we help. I have tried beading, but sewing and crocheting are the crafts I enjoy most. I learned to sew from my mom, and to crochet from my neighbor when I was 13 years old. I've been crocheting for a long time. I find so much joy in creating items that go to children and adults in need. That is how I started helping with Care to Knit.
I was honored to be part of the amazing bracelet journey. I was so impressed by the workmanship. It is a beautiful piece of art. It was fun wearing the bracelet. I received so many compliments. The bracelet did remind me to stay positive in my thoughts.
