A BIG THANK YOU …
goes out to all the people who have donated wool to Lorraine Button so that she can knit mittens, hats etc. for people in need. Lorraine received a massive amount of wool from one donor - enough to last her for the next three years! Therefore, she will no long need any more donations of wool at the present time, as she is running out of room/space to keep the wool. Of course, we also send out a BIG THANK YOU to Lorraine Button for her dedication and talent in creating these wonderful knitted items!
