Needed: New blankets and quilts for veterans
You can purchase new blankets and lap quilts. If you crochet or knit, you can work on making both lap size and full size afghans for the Amvets to donate to both the veterans at the VA Hospital as well as homeless veterans. Lap size afghans, quilts, and blankets are usually either 36” x 36” or 36” x 40”. If you need yarn for this project, see Toni in the office. Last year the Super Sewers donated 24 quilts and you donated another 24 afghans and blankets. Everything needs to be turned by November 1.
