Reader's Exchange: Shopping around for jewelrymaking supplies

Volunteers make the world a better place for so many people! Jan Peters is a volunteer at the Life Care Center of New Port Richey. She and other volunteers there are busy in the activities room making jewelry with the residents, but their supplies are very limited. They are in need of any costume jewelry, beads, beading supplies, beading boards or any other items for making jewelry. Their residents get to keep what they make for themselves or to use as gifts for their family and friends. Jan can be reached at (727) 375-5398.

Sandy of Spring Hill loves to frequent thrift shops, and she recently purchased a cross-stitch poem of the legend of the sand dollar that someone had lovingly spent many hours working on. Sandy is going to repurpose it into a wall hanging. She would like to incorporate real sand dollars into the piece, so she is hoping someone will have them or knows where she can find them. She would like for the person who originally made this piece to know that she appreciates all the work involved and will proudly display it in her home. Sandy can be reached at (352) 666-2981.
