A group of quilters on Flickr is coming together to make pillowcases for the surviving students at Sandy Hook Elementary. Obviously this won't take away what happened but we hope to offer some comfort at this time. This is excerpted from the group's home page.
About Sandy Hook Elementary Pillow Case Drive
HI everyone, The Quilters Corner in New Milford CT has started a pillow case drive for the children of Sandy Hook elementary school.
I saw this on facebook via Maureen Cracknel Handmade
and thought it might be helpful to start a flickr group since I know so many of us sew and they will need approx. 600 pillow cases.
I believe the goal is to get these done so the children can receive them after Christmas break. I know it is a small thing to do....but a pillow is always a great comfort and to be able to give these children a little extra peace at night would be a wonderful thing.
This is the mailing address for the Quilter's Corner:
312 Danbury Rd. ( Rt. 7), New Milford, CT 06776
Please feel free to pass this along, let's get these done for Sandy Hook
I have made one tonight in less than an hour and I hope you will as well.
I used this tutorial here at Film in the Fridge. And you can join the Flickr group here.
