Hand-made, with love

Karmin McCrory, seated, a Davis resident and former teacher, presents six quilts she made by hand to the young men and women residing at Pacifico, a two-year transitional housing program in Davis. These young adults — Desiree Williams (second from left), Brandon Lemos and Lacey Moyer, with Moyer’s son Josiah Narbaiz and Williams’ son Kelveont’e McClay Jr. on McCrory’s lap — grew up in the foster care system and now receive support from Yolo County Child Welfare Services. With them at left is Lea Rosenberg of Soroptimist International of Davis, which provides financial assistance to the young adults to help pay for rent, food, gasoline and books for school. “After hearing Lea talk about the emancipated foster children and their struggle, I volunteered to make them quilts,” McCrory says. “I wanted to do something to help, and quilting is my thing. … Each one is twin bed-size and a different pattern was used for each.” The quilts took 18 months to complete, she adds.
