Cathy shows Danica and her mom Erin about matching fabrics for the pillowcases.
Debbie & Mike (husband & wife, parents of Kyrna in first picture). Background: Joyce works matching and cutting fabric for the pillowcases.
First box of 25 pillowcases. We actually finished 37. I'll probably make three more to round it to 40 total. Then we can split it into 2 boxes and send some of the collected supplies along.
This is a just a handful of the colorful pillowcases we made.
Many employees who had to miss this event for one reason or another, plus the volunteers who did participate, have asked that we do it again. So..... we're gearing up for another night of fun and sewing in the second half of June!
If you're looking for a worthwhile project, check out Operation Pillowcase. Even if you just construct a pillowcase or two yourself, or donate cotton fabric, it's all good! We're all in this together!
