Bridge and Beyond on Facebook

Are you on Facebook?  If so, have you joined our Bridge and Beyond Facebook Group there?
If not, please do.  Posts from here are linked there to aid you staying current with what's going on with Bridge and Beyond.  Thank you's and notices of donations received are also posted there.  When I can post there to let you know your donations arrived, I can do several at one time vs sending separate emails so it saves me time...let's you know sooner generally.  This blog will always be the primary source of information, items with their own tabs etc vs wading through posts there to find something; but..........it gives us another presence and helps build more awareness.

Visiting the blog, posting comments, visiting and posting and liking on facebook are all helpful and things you can do in between stitches...hint hint.  Some folks are on facebook who don't blog which also makes it helpful.

Are you a follower here on the blog?  If not, please become one; that's also helpful.

Please check the tabs for items you wish to make to be certain the item you make is an appropriate size, and color.  Remember pastels aren't a good idea, stay clear of white and ivory's tan's etc.  Is your fiber appropriate?  Anything requiring special attention ie. wool or specialty yarns that need special laundry instructions is a NO NO.  Is your item warm, solid without open airy stitches?  Remember, we're trying to keep people warm.  When in doubt, please ask.  Post a comment here on the blog, leave a note in the contact form, post a question on facebook, or email at sandycrochet@gmail.com.

Please check back, I'll be posting a bit of change for our working calendar with the coming year in mind.

The photo is one I've shared on facebook, so it's possible you've already seen it; but as it's seasonally appropriate and I'm not a fan of posts without pictures thought you all might enjoy this.  AND........if any of you make this for your Thanksgiving Meal, please let me know.  Take a photo, I'd love to post everyone's pictures.

I now return you to your yarn, hooks, and needles.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.


  1. Dont do facebook. Noticing that there are so few comments on this site i figured there had to be another place to post. There always were many more posts on this site then we have gotten in the past few months. Do as little computer work as poossible. Have fun ladies.

  2. Thanks for these timely reminders Sandy! I for one needed reminding!!

  3. Right you are Marj, not many comments here, though I do keep trying to encourage people to do so. Thanks Marj and Sally for the visit and your thoughfulness in always leaving comments. hugs to you both.

  4. I am not on FaceBook either. I am on Ravelry. Hope everyone has done OK with all the storms going around this afternoon. I have been without power for a few hours today. The turkey is cute, but I know that I will not be making it for Thanksgiving.

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?
