    Hello there! I co-own a yarn/knitting shop, and we have lots of high-quality baby yarns & patterns, plus lots of caring knitters who love to make stuff for babies. I’ve been interested for a while in setting up a program to encourage customers to knit & donate quality baby items. One of my employees is a former service spouse, and I thought of her when I saw the information about your organization. Would OSOA have any interest in hand-knit baby clothes & accessories for your showers? If so, with whom should we coordinate?

    Many thanks for your time and for what you do,

    I am a quilter who has donated many quilts for babies, this looks like a great place to donate them. Would you be interested.
