Join us anytime from 9am-7pm, choose a kit, and join our assembly line as you create one or more pillowcases!  Our goal is 1000 pillowcases, that we will then put into shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child and we can’t do it without YOU!

If you can't join us but still want to participate (or if you are an eager beaver and want to sew early and bring some finish cases with,) check out the fun pillow case patterns you can create. Pillow Case Patterns we will be using the "Kids Style Patterns" at the event, but any and all pillowcases will be accepted
.
In addition we will be collecting sewing supplies/notions to put into sewing kits for older girls shoebox gifts.  Help make a difference in a child’s life!
