Our Stockings for Soldiers mini group will be happy to accept muslin or your gently used sheets and cotton tablecloths for stocking linings. We are preparing take-home kits for our monthly meetings and are in the need of inexpensive linings. Please bring donations to the guild meeting.
We were thrilled to get more than 21 kits (210 stockings) ready to sew at our first meeting at the Westlake Village Community Center on the lake. If you would like to join our group on March 12, please pick up directions to the Center from our back table at the March 6 Sinnissippi meeting.
