I saw this on Mark Lipinski’s Facebook page. Thanks, Mark, for being in the loop and sharing this great opportunity.

Here is YOUR chance to help the families in Newtown…

Becky at Quilter’s Corner quilt shop 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 Quilters Corner, 312 Danbury Rd, New Milford, CT. 06776.


Members of our guild have written about pillowcases on their own blogs in the past. The pattern your editor likes is the Twiddletails pattern. The French seams means no raw edges, but the pattern can be a little tricky to understand.

What fun fabrics do you have that could help to brighten  a child’s day? I have some Mexican food fabric that is great for boys!
