CONGRATULATIONS DONNA SNIDER!  Please come into the Wab and pick up “Crochet Inspiration”, by Sasha Kagan, or email us with your snail mail address and we’ll post it to you.

She wrote of a lovely memory of how one useful skill can skip a generation and remnants can fill a room:

As soon as I read this, I had my story to share with you right away. The most wonderful, heartwarming crochet I have ever seen without a doubt was earlier this winter. My Grandmother passed away in November, she had a wonderful long life and was still managing to crochet washcloths at 97 years old. When I walked into the funeral home I was overwhelmed at the sight of so many of her crochet blankets, granny square afgans, and other projects displayed around the rooms. Her favourite knitted sweater and crochet tam were displayed by her side. My family had even displayed her project bag; with hooks, needles and the project she had been working on still inside. I felt so connected to her, it was so wonderful:) I had never seen anything like that before. I shared with my relatives that my daughter, age 20, had been crochetting in the car on the journey to the funeral. This experience was very special to me and a memory I will cherish.
