Donating a Crocheted Scarf

Please help me welcome Jackie D from Ohio, our newest pair of helping hands.  Jackie's crocheted and donated a scarf.  One of the ladies will enjoy this scarf.  Thank you Jackie, hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Please keep up the good work.

March's focus is afghans and quilts, and rain poncho's.  Rain poncho's are a great way for someone who doesn't knit or crochet or quilt to get in the act and help us with donations.  Poncho's help protect those living outdoors in the elements, and those waiting for a bus to get to work and or job training through the shelters.

We expanding our mission to accept quilters so I've got my toes and fingers crossed we'll get some quilts to add to our afghans for Project Welcome Home.  Please see information regarding colors and sizes etc. in the afghan tab across the top of the blog.

Have you joined the facebook group yet?  If not, please do.  Like our page and chat, both are helpful in spreading the word.  I need to ask you to friend me so I can add you to the group if we're not already connected via friends on facebook.  I can accept your friend request, but at the moment can't make anymore.  Starting the group, adding people, friending people was apparently too much too quickly which made facebook administrators think I was spam of some sort.  Irritating, but eventually I'm told my friend button will be back.  Find me as Sandy Mader Holladay on facebook, or click on my name.  There's only one of me, so...am easy to find.

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?
