    I am now just joining in on making scarves for operation gratitude. How many scarves or hats do you usually need in a year and what months do you need the most donated? I am a yarn person and would love to give to the troops. I just want to make sure you still need more and when you need them

    Hello.. My name is Melinda Prusinski.. I am interested in learning how to do the cord bracelets and possibly learn how to knit or crochet scarves.. never have done it before but have wanted to learn.. anything to help the Vets!! My e mail is pmprusinski@ca.rr.com. If you can let me know How much, where to get the items and what I need to do to get started, I would appreciate it.. Also.. Is there a way that I can make these for the general public in support and remembering our Veterans? Been wanting to do this for over a year or two now and didn’t know the right resources.. Thank you so much for your time and effort!! Sincerely, Melinda Prusinski
