Call for Bandages!

Hello Ladies!!

It's ALREADY that time of year! Linda Stocker at the Bandage Brigade headquarters has made the annual CALL for BANDAGES! This means that it is time to wrap up this year's work and get our bandages mailed off to Ohio so they can make their journey over to Vietnam.

Please bring all of your completed bandages to this meetup on Saturday, November 23, 2013 or make other arrangements with Carol or me (Lizzie) to get them to us before then. Our shipment must go out first thing the following Monday to make the arrival deadline of December 1. 

ALSO-- many of you have generously offered to help cover the cost of shipping and I am grateful for any contributions. Please plan to bring cash to this meetup as well. I have no sense of what the shipment will cost because I'm not sure how many bandages to expect, BUT if we happen to receive more than what is needed for the shipment, I will apply the extra funds towards the bi-annual meetup dues if you have no objection. :)

Finally-- if you are also helping to make the dolls for the children's hospital, Pam will have stuffing available at this meetup for you. Please shoot her a message through meetup if you would like some stuffing so she can make all necessary arrangements. I know the hospital is beyond grateful for all the blankets and dolls you are making. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! :)

Please let me know if you have any questions! I can't wait to see everyone in 2 weeks!

Warmest Regards,

Lizzie Smiley

    We had a great time getting bandages ready to send to Sgt. Stocker. Everyone pitched in and it took no time at all to sew in ends and roll the bandages for shipment. Looks like we'll have 70-75 bandages to send this time as compared with the 12 we sent last year! Great job everybody!!! Hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    If anyone has scraps of yarn (doesn't have to be terribly long), I would like to incorporate it into my blanket.

    November 11, 2013

    • Carol

      I probably have some yarn you can have too, Rumiko.

      November 11, 2013

    • Betsy

      Yes, I meant the 23rd. I have spinning group and a shower on the 16th - I couldn't fit in another meeting anyway, lol.
