Community Service Day ... Charity Quilting

Rona Kleiman popped by the store this afternoon to pick up quilts and knitted blankets for Project Linus . I am very proud to say that we had two giant bags filled with quilts for her.

Project Linus is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization. Its mission is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need, through the gifts of homemade, washable quilts, blankets, and afghans, lovingly crafted by volunteer blanketeers.

Sew Sisters collects your handmade items and sends them on to Project Linus where they are distributed to children in need. You can drop off your contributions at any time. Visit the Project Linus website to learn more about this wonderful organization and for free patterns to use in making your quilt, blanket, or afghan.

On July 15, 2008 from 10:00 to 3:00 Sew Sisters Quilt Shop will be having a Community Service Day. Bring your sewing machine and thread if you can, and join us to make quilts for Project Linus and Pillow Cases for Conkerr! Even an hour of your time would be a great contribution!

We will provide all the fabric as well as the instructions to make quilts for charitable donation. This will be a day of friendship, fun and accomplishment -- we hope you will join us! If you wish to make pillowcases we will give a 30% discount on fabrics purchased for that purpose..just ask for details.
