Changes with suppliers
One of our suppliers is closing and another one is no longer carrying some yarn lines after the end of a contract. This shouldn’t affect us too much as we still have lots of options. I have been working at finding replacements for some of them too. Once the yarns are gone though, they are gone.
Blankets for Hope Boxes
Hope Boxes are given to women and their families who have lost their babies through miscarriage or stillbirth. The boxes are filled with items to encourage and support the families. A small baby blanket is a cherished item to hold in their empty hands. This is where you can help. We’re looking for blankets knit or crocheted in white, green or yellow between 12” x 12” and 15” x 15”. Please drop off your donations at Sweet Yarns. If you would like a free pattern for making the blankets, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
