Hello ladies! I would like to thank you SO VERY MUCH for the beautiful crocheted blanket you donated for the fundraiser for my sister Kathy Gould, who was left paralysed from a fall in December. When I showed the blanket to Kathy, she loved it! We had the fundraiser on Feb 21st in Woodstock at the Moose Lodge...had a great turnout and a successful event. It was a wonderful surprise when the lady who won that gorgeous blanket donated it back to my sister! Here is a photo of Kathy with the blanket.(View the photo in the Gallery) We are so grateful to you for your kindness! Tammy Gould

We were honoured to have been among the three finalists for this prestigious Award, and are thrilled to have won!

(We shall use the money over the course of the year for the purchase of yarn with which to make even lovelier blankets!)
