Check out the great news about the charity site www.BernatCares.com at the Katie's Comforter's Guild blog.

That's wonderful, Karen. Will afghans be accepted or do they have to be real quilts? Every so often, I get on a knitting kick. Is there a particular size that's required? Are the details on one of the sites?

Dear Mich,

Knitted and crocheted blankets are welcome! Any size from baby blankets to teen-size would be wonderful.
I have listed some free pattern links on www.katiescomfortersguild.blogspot.com, and BernatCares has some, too. Please leave another comment if you have more questions, and thanks for your interest!

This is wonderful news Karen!!!!

Daisy said...

Thanks so much for the quick response and info, Karen. I will definitely check out those patterns.

That's a beautiful think, Karen. And I received my guild membership card in the mail today! I can not sew but I can knit and wonder whether I might work on a blanket for the Guild. I am going to check out the info you gave here.

You're welcome, Mich.

Elizabeth, thank you for joining! Would you like me to send you a Jo-Ann Stores 10% discount card, now that you have your membership card? If so, please email your address to me, and I will send it.

People just love to be a part of something good--and I think you are gathering so many good people and businesses to your gentle cause. This has got to be very exciting for you. What a beautiful legacy Katie leaves, because of you.
Love and hugs and prosperity to Katie's Guild and all the lives she touches.
