Additional Information 


  • Volunteers who are unable to attend the group meetings are welcomed to work on items from home and then drop the items off to us.  Your donated items will be included with the items that the group has made.   
  • We can always use blankets, scarves, hats -- for men, women, children, and babies.  The blankets we normally make are 36" square, but can be smaller for children and babies. We also do baby sweaters -- small for new-borns or preemies.  We do helmet liners for military.  Currently, we are in need of baby hats for newborns. 
  • We use acrylic yarns which can be easily cared for.  Only exception is helmet liners which are warmer done in washable wool. 
  • Items can be dropped off at our main office: 7120 Oakland Mills Road, Columbia, MD 21046 Monday-Friday between 8AM-4PM.
