Thinking ahead a bit.... Humanitarian Booth...
I am seriously considering... and yes, I likely need therapy, but I am seriously planning and thinking, of setting up the Humanitarian Booth at the Clark County, NV fair which is APRIL 10 - 13, 2008.
Had I been thinking clearly the other day, I would not have turned in all the mittens, socks, dollies, file folder game (the one I got done so far!) etc etc, I had already made for LDS humanitarian at Crafting Angels! So now I am starting all over making mittens, socks, and who knows what before April. I need to email the humanitarian people here and see if any of them have some things to turn in.
All I could think of was those freezing little ones without socks or mittens, or a dolly to hug, and I turned 'em in!
If any of you want to make an item or 2 and mail them to be displayed at the Humanitarian Booth, I would love that! I will then make sure they get to DI and to Humanitarian for you. You can also send preemie items, hats, booties, 15" blankets etc for UMC and I will make sure they get there too.
<--- county fair humanitarian booth 2007
Here is a list of items I would like to display:
Socks and slippers
handmade underwear/boxers etc for little ones Little girls dresses
Boys t-shirts or pants
File folder games
Bright colored Wall-hangings for the orphanages (18" square to about 36" square) Crib quilts 45" x 60"
baby and children's sweaters
LDS humanitarian ~ school kits, hygiene kits and newborn kits
quiet books- fabric
teddy bears, stuffed animals, puppets and tanned dolls
And then preemie items for UMC hospital in Vegas
Preemie hats and booties, and burial gowns and pouches
I need to get hold of the lady in charge of that area of the fair to see if I can do a booth this year. The Fine Arts area is usually in desperate need of booths though so I don't think that will be a problem. =) Getting a committee here to help might be however, but I have a couple of friends who are always there for me!! How blessed am I?
Anyhow... if you want to donate something to be displayed (not judged or anything - just displayed) please mail it to me by April 1st.

If by any strange turn of events I don't get a booth this year, then I will still make sure they get where needed.
As always there are lots of patterns for all of these on my website Bev's Country Cottage
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE!!
