Baby hats, mittens, and booties galore!

Putting the finishing touches on the first In The Loop parcel we will send to the Richmond University Medical Center Auxiliary on Staten Island. The Auxiliary gave out their stock of baby items after Hurricane Sandy to help those in need in the community, and your hard work will help replenish their collection.

Thanks to all of you, they will soon have over 200 bibs, hats, socks, mittens, and booties to distribute, so that newborn babies can go home in warm clothing.
If you have outstanding projects from the last few months, please send them to Ina at her studio this week, so that they can be included.
