Our mission is to create 250 pillowcases for the young boys and girls who are in our local hospitals fighting the good fight. These young people are forced to stay in the hospital in sterile white conditions. These colorful age appropriately patterned pillowcases are available for these young ones to choose from. In some cases, this is the only choice these young people can make. They do not choose to be ill, they do not choose to be in the hospital, they do not choose their treatment. These pillowcases are their choice.
The fabrics used are all different types of fun, playful, colorful and age appropriate patterns.
The tasks that we need help with:
1. Cutting fabric
2. Pinnding pattern pieces together
3. Sewing the pattern pieces together
4. Turning the seams.
5. Ironing the seams.
6. During the seams.
7. Creating a French seam.
8. And finally, the last iron and fold
We will be playing our musical tasks, so each volunteer will have the opportunity to learn and do multiple of the listed tasks. This event is created with love, compassion, laughter and fun. We're looking for 35 to 40 volunteers, with room for more. Please invite your friends and family and anyone else who wants to bring a smile to our young warrior's faces.
Everything will be provided, all we need is you!
