Now Collecting Knitted & Crocheted Hats and Scarves

We are collecting knitted and crocheted hats and scarves to be given to the Salvation Army as part of the "Share the Warmth" coat project.  We hope to have a hat or scarf available for them also.  Last year we gave 636 items to the Salvation Army.   Stop by the shop and I will give you yarn!  They need adult and children sizes!!!! 

The completed items need to be at the shop by Monday, November 27.
