Sewing Some Love

babypop,one million pillowcases,fabric

For many hundreds of year women would sit together and sew. This week, I understood a tradition of the past. Sewing Circles. There were 5 of us in attendance Joy, Sabra, Sarah, Tannia, and I . We all said how fun it was to sit and sew together.    Granted we all had technology of Singer, Brother and Vikings, but the idea was the same a group of women getting together for a common cause and create good. The cause: One Million Pillowcases Challenge. Joy organized group as an Etsy meetup and  The Midwives Gallery/SquidWhale Designs was kind enough to give us a space to work in. The supplies we sponsored by All People Quilt.

We used the rollitup pillowcase technique to make the pillowcases was super easy you can down load them here. It was really great for me, because as someone who has been sewing for 30 years it was great to learn something new.  try it out event the most newbie sewer can do it.


We sewed for about 2 hours and made 17 pillows that will be donated to children’s hospitals and nursing homes.


Here are the pictures of the event:

What have you done for others lately? 

How often do you give your time to someone besides you kids?

Hope we find the other part of that machine.  I had no idea it was so important.  It made me hold my breath at time.  I never knew what you would create.
