Tuesday May 1st Meeting

This month we are pleased to welcome Donna Hancock
as our guest speaker.
Donna is the owner of a small business which
produces spun mohair, from her angora goats
at her farm in Elora, Ont.


Here is her website for more information.

(I have actually been there, it is quite amazing)

Come and hear all about the process of
"making mohair".

Please read the following information from Jo Ann,
our contact for the Twiddle Muffs and Linus Blankets.

Hi Everyone:

I dropped off both the Twiddle Muffs and Linus Blankets today.  Both organizations were very appreciative!
The Alzheimers Society was grateful especially for the twiddle muffs that were done in gender neutral colours.  She said often they don't have enough for men.  She loved the zippers!

Our Linus Blanket contact had this to say:

"I now have the 50 blankets that Camp Erin had requested!  Thanks to all your ladies for your AWESOME support for Project Linus!!!"  She went on to say that the ATBKG has donated 92 blankets since we first started a few years ago!

I think it would be great if this could be shared on our website, and/or at our next meeting, so that everyone hears this wonderful news!

Thanks,

Jo Ann

Also to remind us about the Linus Project and the services they give.
The Bob Kemp Hospice runs a bereavement camp every June in Bracebridge.  It is called Camp Erin and 50 children, aged 6-17 attend.  They have all suffered the loss of either a parent, sibling, grandparent, or someone else close to them.  For more information please visit:  https://kemphospice.org/camp-erin
Project Linus has been asked to supply the children with a cuddly blanket as something they could be comforted by.  Because of our Guild's current relationship with Project Linus, we have been asked to be involved in this request.  Your ongoing support of Project Linus is appreciated.  Please continue to give your Project Linus blankets to 
Jo Ann at our regular meetings.  Your donated blankets will be shared not only with Women's shelters, but also with the children of Camp Erin.  Thank you!!
