Donations from South Carolina

 Thank you Emma D from one of my favorite states, South Carolina for this thoughtful donation.  I love vacationing in South Carolina, thus my favorite comment.  You might have seen one of my many travel posts about places we enjoy going in SC.  Slippers, cotton washcloths, and a crocheted hat are all so very much appreciated.  Special thanks too, Emma for labeling them with size.  Very nice!

Please keep up the good work.

 Reminders:
Please avoid novelty yarns, suede and all non washable fibers.
Please avoid the white, off-white, beige.
Please never tie a knot and cut.  Always work in tails to keep items from unraveling, and always tuck in all tails (don't forget the insides of hats etc.)
Please avoid spraying items with perfumes, air-freshners.  Launder instead.
Always include a note with your donations that has your name and your email addy.
Please make sure your donations are free of pet hair.
Please avoid stitches they are open/lacy.  We need sturdy warm stitches.
Please label hats, mittens, and slippers with size.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
