THESE HELPING HANDS HAVE FUN!

Saturday I attended the Scrapper's Helping Hands at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Rosa, right, runs this group and makes kits from donated fabrics and decides which projects we will work on, and makes sure that our donated sewing gifts get distributed.  That is quite an undertaking!  A special thank you to Rosa and all the women shown above who work diligently sewing for charity.
Just before I left I took pictures of pillowcases made during the day and some that were brought in for distribution.  We have some wonderful women who sew at home too.  I counted a total of 36 pillowcases that day and when I left the women were still sewing!

These were also included in the above count.  You may note the red, white and blue pillowcases.  Last November Rosa put out a call asking for fabrics for pillowcases that will be given to our veterans.  Several ladies, who asked not to be named, brought in bags of red, white, and blue fabrics for us to use. We used a lot of the fabrics then and the pillowcases were distributed to veterans. Above are more pillowcases made with fabric from those donations.  We were in awe at the amount of wonderful fabrics. A special thank you goes out to those anonymous women who donated.  I've always said, Quilters are the Best!
Above, Nancy shows us two of her pillowcases that I don't think were included in the pictures above.
These are the four pillowcases that I made that day.  All the fabric for these pillowcases has been donated to the group.  Again, a special blessing to you who have donated.  It is that time of year when you start de-stashing and organizing so don't forget that this group will gladly accept any donations for this charity group.
