Are you interested or know of anyone who likes to knit or crotchet and doesn’t have anyone to give their beautiful work to? We could sure do with your talent to knit dolls, teddy bears, kitty cats, etc. We will supply you with yarn and patterns. Also, balls made with scrap yarn wound into balls with a crotchet cover (we will show you how to make these). The yarn can be anything - knobby, thick, thin, ugly colours, any scrap yarn - all for the needy children in Roatan. For more information phone Daisie at 403-823-7074.
