Long time Marco Island resident Marie Senechal uses her creative talents to bring the forces of color and texture together, in a blanket approach of healing.
For many years, Marie Senechal, age 90, has been sewing, knitting and crocheting colorful blankets, afghans and quilts for children in need. For a child, a blanket can be a source of warmth, comfort and security. Sometimes a blanket can feel like a best friend. Marie donates her creations through seven different charities, including the local Providence House, Friendship House, St. Matthew’s House, and the Naples Shelter for Abused Women and Children. Through Airline Ambassadors International and its sub-group, Miracles in Action, Marie has donated her works to children in Guatemala, Mexico and Peru.
