A note about our “Pet Project”…
We appreciate your help with our pet bed project. Beds to fill at your home are available for pick up at no charge, or you can make your own. All sizes are needed. The one thing we ask is that you don’t just bring us bags of your scraps. Fabric scraps are GREAT for stuffing the beds, polyfil/fiberfill stuffing is NOT. We simply do not have the time or resources to make them from start to finish. A big thanks to those who are willing to do donation drop-offs to the animal hospitals/shelters for us.
Our Passports are ready – stop in for yours $5.00
