Coats for Canines

'Coats for Canines' is a winter coat drive for the puppies up north at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. It can get down to 20 below on the reservation and many pups come into the shelter with such bad mange they are almost hairless. Can you imagine being outside in January naked? OK now you have the right picture in your mind and we could use your help to keep these puppies toasty warm. Coats for Canines is collecting and creating dog coats in a variety of styles and sizes. My mom in Nebraska is knitting sweaters. Pictured here they are being modeled by two Red Lake dogs Emma and Harley that are being fostered through Pet Haven. Mom is making up thepattern as she goes along. She did say she would write up some instructions so look for that in a future post. If you have any left over yarn we could use it. We are also sewing coats out of fleece. Leftover pieces of fleece would be helpful too. As this project develops we will be adding knitters and sewers. Not handy with the needles? We are also collecting new or used coats. Any of these donations can be dropped off at the sale address below. Contact us at laura.leonard55@gmail.com and let us know how you can help.

This Saturaday September 26th from 9-1 we are having a fabric sale (used to be a seamstress in another life) at 2211 Pierce St Ne Mpls 55418 to raise funds for supplies.

Wide variety of fabrics--contemporary, reproductions, batiks, Christmas, and more. Fat quarters, yardage, and scrap bags. Small samples of Italian designer wools. Retro drapery panels. Apron collection. Quilting books, frames and accessories. Christmas notions and crafts. Sewing patterns-some collectibles.

Thanks in advance from all the Red Lake puppies!
