Warm Fuzzies

My mother belongs to a group called The Holy Needles, a knitting group through one of the local churches. They formed the group in early 2009 to create beanies, blanets and booties for needy newborns in the Tucson area; in just one year, they've delivered over 1,500 items to local hospitals.

They were recently asked to make small fleece blankets for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the University of Arizona Medical Center. In researching their fleece options, someone suggested they look into
Polartec who may provide end bolt pieces or scraps of fleece for them to make the blankets with.

Well, not only did Polartec step up to the plate, but they donated SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY YARDS of fabric!! And paid for the shipping. Holy Shi Needle!!!

I'll admit I don't know a whole lot about Polartec, but isn't it nice to see a company doing something for someone other than themselves? Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
