Baby Threads really needs your help. Please donate yarn

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Can you help? Baby Threads has done a lot for the needy of New Hampshire, but now Baby Threads is broke. We need yarn or donations for the purchase of yarn.

You all know Jokie. She's the wonderful lady who crochets everywhere as she pushes her husband's wheelchair all around town. She crochets 250 twin size blankets each year. Those blankets are given to the elderly, kids in needy families, and kids in foster care. Baby Threads has been providing the yarn and now we need your help.

Jokie uses ordinary Red Heart yarn. It takes three plain color skeins and four skeins of multi-color to make one blanket. Yarn can be dropped off at Baby Threads Workshop at 668 Main Street in Laconia on Tuesday or Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
