    Hi,
    I would like to make some scarfs. However I cannot print out the pattern. I have an old computer and not sure if it is compatible with the format.

    Help!!

    hi Linda,

    The National WWII museum flyer says that you can request a pattern, or if you have questions or comments to contact Lauren at lauren.handley@nationalww2museum.org or call 504-527-6012 ext. 229.

    Good Luck! I think it’s great that you are going to make scarves for the veterans!
