YAY! Casper has a new yarn shop: Canyon Creek Fiber and Yarn in Sunrise. Heidi, the owner, has gracious allowed us to put a donation jar and Bosom Buddies info on her counter.

She has a great space, and a vision of how she wants to use it. Very cozy area for in-store crocheting, knitting, weaving, spinning, or whatever your fiber fancy is.

Thank you, Heidi!

We are so thankful to Windblown Fibers for giving us a place to meet and work. Thank you Zantha and Hannah for helping us source yarn and communicating with our knitters and recipients.

The heart and soul of Bosom Buddies of Wyoming, ladies coming together to knit prosthetics for ladies who’ve had a mastectomy. We were missing Charlotte, but we’re so glad for all of the others here tonight for a picture by our relatively new sign. (These ladies represent many others who help with the knitting. We’re so thankful for all who are involved). We’re honored to be the home of Bosom Buddies.
