What a pillow case day!

Yesterday was our Pillow Case for Cancer Patients sew day.
I can't even begin to tell you the love and support shown by so many.
We made over 90 pillow cases.

When I first thought of making  pillow cases for Cancer Patients I knew if I asked all of my quilting friends they would help. Kinda like if you build it they would come, and boy did they!
 I also went to several local quilt shops in my area and asked if they would like to host an event.
 Without hesitation Scrapbooks Etc jumped on board.  They offered to host an open sew event and even offered to be a drop of location for those who couldn't attend the sew day  but wanted to help make pillow cases.
Julie and Marti at ETC, went above and beyond to make this event successful and fun. They donated over 50 pillow case kits and also donated this beautiful quilt to one lucky participant.

Vicki was the lucky winner of this beautiful quilt Marti donated.
Thanks to all that came out and help.

I would also like to thank everyone who donated a door prize.
Not only did these ladies come out and help but they also donated their pillow case pattern to everyone who participated.
And if that wasn't enough they asked their quilt group to make pillow case for us as well.
Thanks Audrey and Cheri.

Maytee Green owner of True Essence Salon for the generous Aveda gift basket and gift card.
Trudy Maples for a $25 Pampered Chef Gift Card
Pam McMahon donated six of her Piece by Piece patterns
Ribbons and Lace donated a $15 gift card
Monica Croom donated a $50 gift card for her Awesome Artisan Quilting Long Arm Quilting.
April Horvath for a generous gift basket of Avon products.
Me and My Sister Barb Groves for giving everyone a Mini Charm Pack of their new line
Thanks to the amazing friend and family who donated money for fabric purchase.
I hope this is just the beginning and that their will be many more sewing day dedicated to making pillow cases for cancer patients.
