Thank you – from Susan W

Dear Ladies of Stitch and Bitch,
Your welcome yesterday was overwhelming as were your generosity and caring during my hospital stay.
There were gifts of food, prayers, words of encouragement , calls, cards telling Milt and I what wonderful support we had .
We share our love of yarn and it is what “knits” us together as loving, supportive community .
Thank you for all you have given us.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Love, Susan
