One of the handicraft classes was knitting a blanket for a premature baby and the response was fantastic, with many exhibitors donating extra items.

welcome and will be used. The nurses loved all the items, especially the winning blanket made by Jan Holmes. I wasn’t allowed to see anything there because of infection control.
