Thanks to Joy Baskin for coming up with this great idea and gathering everything!!! How can I win this you ask??? A special Big Door Prize ticket will be given to each person for every 10 items that they donate at The Big Stitch October 14. Sorry, dishcloths and granny squares will not be included in this special drawing. We are looking for hats (we need everything except baby hats unless the are going with a blanket) baby blankets, lapghans, afghans, car seat covers (no preemie items needed at this time). We get such a HUGE request for hats in the fall and winter that this is what we need the most. Neutral colors are best. Chemo hats too. Granny square sets will still be accepted as well as dishcloths, but they won’t be eligible for this special drawing. GET BUSY MY FRIENDS!!!
