I am sorry folks for being such a mess the last few days! This post is to give me something positive to do! Blogs all over are trying to find something to help out! I have made pillowcases for the last 2 years for kids in hospitals and have seen first hand how it does cheer them up. So lets all spend a couple hours making the surviving children pillowcases at Sandy Hook School. Just make happy pillowcases and mail it/them to the Quilters Corner. Postage for a single pillowcase is not much and maybe we will feel better because we did something!
Pillowcases for Kids of Sandy Hook Elementary
Jackie from Canton Village Quilt Works passed this info along:
Help the families in Newtown... Here is how... Becky at Quilters Corner in New Milford, CT is collecting pillowcases for the children at Sandy Hook School. She is trying to collect around 600.
Please pass this message to any sewing friends.
Pillowcases can be mailed to her at
312 Danbury Rd.
