More donations , these are from Arina one of our online volunteers. Thank you so much for choosing casting off the cold to donate your beautiful  work and I am looking forward  to hearing from you again.
Happy Holidays.


Well we are warping up 2012  and getting ready for 2013. The  response this year was excellent  and we are hoping to receive the same for 2013. But we still need new volunteers to join us ether on line or at our meetings. It only takes one item to help us meet our goal, but if you can handle more, that will be great.  So this winter get those needle and hooks out and start a project to keep some one warm.

here a few items from the Stouffville group. These are some very warm hat and scarf sets from Christine.

And a very colourful blanket.
