Southwest US Oddball Baby Blankets
Hello friendly charity knitters and crocheters!

We work together to make Oddball Baby Blankets for charity. Our blankets will be made according to the requests of our local hospital(s), so keep watching this thread to see our guidelines.

Secksiebrat will be the leader for the Southwest Region Oddball Baby Blankets.

The Southwest Region includes: Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.

If you would like to volunteer to help make our blankets, please send Secksiebrat a private message, and she'll help you get started!

Our project will begin in August, so let's start our plans!

Can't wait for August to start!

Hey y'all :waving: I received PM's from the 3 of you, so I have you on my list!

I am really excited about starting these up again and I look forward to working with all of you! :woot:

I will be out of town for good part of the next few weeks, so I may not be posting very often. But I assure everything will be organized and ready to go. I will keep you all in the loop so we can plan accordingly.

has anyone giving any thought as to what charity we are going to donate the blankets to? or do we want to find different hospitals in each state to donate to the children/Neonatal Intensive care units.

Just wondering.

Secksiebrat 07-14-2008 10:25 PM

I think we can donate to whichever hospitals we like! HAIN (heavenly angels in need) has a running spreadsheet that gives hospitals from every state that wants/needs blankets/other items. If we don't have any in mind to use currently, we might look at those and pick a couple to donate to.

Just my thoughts :) I'm open, just thought it might be nice to donate to a hospital that's in our "southwest" area!


PS. I am part of HAIN and I can get a couple of the spreadsheet and the donation instructions if we are interested in doing that :)

I think we might need to start "dragging in" more knitters! LOL. Maybe others just haven't posted yet, but we need more of us! We must just be all lost in the HEAT!!
