Simple Comforts


Posted on December 17th, by Amy in Charity. 8 comments

Hi Friends – like me, I’m sure many of you have hugged your kids a little closer this last weekend.  My heart is so heavy for those grieving families, and the traumatized kids in the Connecticut community.  While on Facebook, over the weekend, I found many of my quilting friends sharing a post, about a local shop in Connecticut collecting pillowcases.  In an effort to offer comfort to the kids at Sandy Hook Elementary, Quilter’s Corner is collecting 600+ pillowcases and would love to have your help in the effort.

I’m planning to make a couple and get them in the mail early this week!  Also, I have a quick and simple tutorial for a pillowcase Sophia made a couple years ago, if she can do it – I know you can too!

 Pillowcases can be mailed to:

Quilters Corner, 312 Danbury Rd, New Milford, CT. 06776

Blessings ~ Amy

    Amy, couldn’t sleep, and just ran across your post (above) and also the pillow tutorial. I love the idea of hiding all of the seams, but just could not picture it at 5:30 in the morning! I am going to re-read it later and see if it sinks in – and I do appreciate it, as I was mulling over fabric choices for pillowcases while trying to sleep. Thanks for being there – again!

    Absolutely count me in….I’ll have them off in the mail by tomorrow. This is a great opportunity to just send a little “comfort” to those who were closest to those little angels….
