In the last month or so, our Admins have been very busy with personal and family issues and the blog has been neglected a little bit.   But, several challenges have been posted (and completed) over on our Facebook page during this time......including our last challenge, which was a very large one.   To our amazement (well, maybe I shouldn't say that because we have such wonderful and dedicated members in this group), this very large challenge was completely pledged in TWO DAYS!!!!  

We have now posted our next challenge  ---  CHALLENGE #12 of 2017  ---  to the Facebook page and will be posting here on the blog very shortly.

If you would like to take part in this challenge by pledging and making some slippers for this shelter, please list your pledge in the comments area under the challenge - OR - even better, send it by email to us:

You may use whatever pattern you wish as long as it falls within the size category for the slippers that you pledge.   We need to know which category or categories you wish to make and how many of each size.    The mailing info and mail by date will be included in the challenge information.

There is a Sizing Chart link in the right hand column of the blog.   If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask us!
