First group meeting for 2012 and we had a great turn out and many beautiful items were donated.
Finally winter is here and i am sure you all will be looking for some thing to do on these cold winter days. Well how about working on an Afghan! There a lots of beautiful patterns on the web you can download for free. We will be working on Afghans over the next two months, since there is a great need for some of our charities, we donate to. Also some large blankets for kids 10 years and over. So if you would like to help out this year, we would be happy to hear from you.Our online members were very busy last year and we received many donates of lovely clothing from them. Thank you all and we hope we will see more of your great work.

Here is Helen a new member for the Markham group,
