Over 200 Pillow Cases!

We had three successful sewing days during the month of February. One was the pillow case "sweat shop." We really cranked 'em out that day! Including the pillow cases that were delivered already completed, we ended the day with 240 pillow cases! Wowie!!! Way to go, ladies! There were more turned in at our March meeting, so the final total inched closer to 300. Pillow cases are being distributed to B. Robert Lewis House (a shelter for battered women and children) and a couple other similar establishments around the area.

The other two sewing days in Feb were dedicated to working on Quilts of Valor and quilts for Home of the Brave. We hear that those days were successful ventures, too.

Hello! I just found your other blog this morning, so clicked over here wondering if this is the Dakota county as in MN or what. I also live in Dakota county. Unfortunately I don't quilt but would some day love to learn. The quilts are so beautiful!
