A Heartfelt Thank You!


We asked and you knitted.  We asked and you sewed.  We asked and you gave.   For this and so many other reasons we are thankful.

Because of you...

112 People will be receiving handmade scarves on Christmas Day;
155 women and children will be sleeping on fresh, clean, sewn pillowcases;
19 stylish peeps will be wearing handmade hats;
2 folks will get a pair of hand-warming mittens;
$260 will go to the St. Anthony Dining Room from the sale of grab bags;
$50 will go to the St. Anthony Dining Room from the sale of Jordana Paige "Imperfectly Perfect" Bags (and I vow if we sell the remaining ones we will donate 100% of those funds too); and
1 Bobbin's Nest Studio owner's eyes are teary with appreciation.

I dropped off this haul at St. Anthony Foundation.  The men who were taking in donations were gracious and lovely.  They told me that they have been just blown away with the donations!  They asked for 2,500 scarves...as of this afternoon, they had taken in over 6,000!  This means that EVERY person that eats Christmas dinner with them gets a scarf.  EVERY PERSON!!!  And they'll have leftovers!

The pillowcases were an extra bonus just from Bobbin's Nest and I think I will forever be referred to as "the pillowcase lady."  Ha!

Thank you for your time.  Thank you for your fabric and yarn donations.  Thank you for being you. Pin It

Yay! It's great to hear about the results of all the hard work! Crafters are the best.
