For All of Those "Crumbs" of Fabric You Have Saved ...

Here's a vest pattern that you can use with all of those "crumbs" of fabric that you have saved over the years. The pattern is called "Needle in a Haystack" and it is by Lorraine Torrance. You can do a Google to find where to buy in on the web. A couple of words of warning .... the pattern pieces are designed for someone who is tall and flat so if you are not of that kind of shape be prepared to modify the pattern. Also, there's a lot of stitching with monofilament thread over Solvy to trap those schnibbles of fabric on to the backing. But once you are done you will have created a unique garment. (And with my sense of humor I just had to put a needle in it.)

Some charity help needed

Posting for a distant relative in Washington State. A group of young people wishing to do a service for the community in Everett, Washington, is collecting items for 15 foster children for Christmas. (There are 7 boys and 8 girls, ages 7 to 15). They are hoping to find people to donate twin quilts to the effort, or alternatively, some fabric. If anyone can help, please contact Lori at angleyez4oneATyahooDOTcom. She is the mother of one of the young men involved in the project. Thanks one and all for whatever help you can give. Lavinia/TN
