PILLOWS FOR PATRIOTS (4/5/20)

We have canceled our sewing sessions until June.  However, that could change depending on whether or not we are allowed to visit one another.

In the meantime, I have switched from pillows to masks.  They are really simple to make and since we may all be required to use them to go out shopping or whatever we want to do, it is something we can all use.

There are two types of masks.  The first is for our medical personal and it fits over their N95 masks as an extra layer of protection.  The second type is for your personal use and for your family and friends.

If you would like to help with this project from your home and you have access to a sewing machine please give me a call.  My number is 973-818-1353.  I will give you the information on how to get a pattern or I can send one to you.  I have plenty of fabric and thread if you need any.  I can drop it off at your house.  (It’s a good excuse for me to get in the car and go for a ride.)

Please let me know if you would like to help. Hoping everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Thanks,  Cheryl

COMFORT PILLOW PROJECT (Will resume in June)
Join us at this ongoing family event where we will be making “Comfort Pillows” for our wounded soldiers and veterans at the VA hospitals; skirts and dresses for little girls in an orphanage in Africa; and other items as needed. We will also be decorating pillowcases and writing notes to our deployed soldiers.
You do not need to be able to sew. We always need “stuffers” for the pillows. For those who are artistic decorating a pillowcase or two might be for you.
There is something for everyone – parents, children, grandparents, and grandchildren. Come out and show your support for our soldiers and those less fortunate than ourselves.
