The Busam Buddies Need Some Help

Help Keep This Ministry Alive!

There and many steps involved in making our blankets which do not require stitching, and “we’ll get by with a little help from our friends.”

If you are willing to do some pressing fabric, and/or helping with the tracing and cutting of hands, please let Nancy Witte [441-7478] or Bonnie Hitch [441-4423] know.

If you still have blankets that need to be stitched, we would appreciate hearing from you as to whether or not you are still able to do them.

We really do want to keep this ministry alive if we can because we know it is appreciated by the blanket recipients. And don’t we all love seeing babies wrapped in the white blankets?? We can keep doing it with a bit more help.
