Tip Of The Month
I know we all thought we had plenty of 9 strips for this year's request. After all last year we needed slightly less than 300 and we have 340 in storage and about another 20, some which still need quilting. However, we have received requests for approximately 550 of them. We plan to have an assembly line to make them at MABD. Thanks to Marilyn Nickel we have some at almost every stage. Barb will be busy making kits, so if you have time to make any now, or just to get them started, she will be putting some in her outbox starting October 8th. If you have some in progress, please finish them ASAP. If you have some in progress and think you can finish them by MABD, please let Barb know how many.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept blankets made with the "Make it Give it" fleece sold at JoAnn's as it is not as durable as their standard fleece. We want our blankets to last through years and years of snuggling and hugging. Thank you for your understanding and support.
