This is from me (Rhonda)
I was at the Cancer Center yesterday and asked about needs for hats and they said to bring them so you can drop them by the center yourself or get them to me to take. They didn’t have specific requirements but you would need to use a soft washable yarn. I would suspect that hats for men are especially needed.

For Project Linus, I dropped our donations off to the person in Hendersonville when I went to the Anything Fiber Sale so I will take the box for that back to the Art Center when I go for banjo on Thursday so you can start filling it up again.
