Fall/Winter Charity Event Conclusion

We came. We saw. We made pillowcases!
227 to be exact.

Did you get that? 

Two Hundred and Twenty Seven.

 Dear St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild members - our hearts overflow with gratitude!

How wonderful that we will be touching the lives of 227 people! 
Our sincerest thanks to everyone who contributed.

About 1/5th of the pillowcases were delivered to Hospice Compassus where they will bring joy to patients and families in Hospice Care.  A huge thank you to Nancy for suggesting this donation and making the delivery!

Nancy reports that the staff was thrilled to receive the pillowcases!

The remaining pillowcases were donated last Friday to the kids at the St. Louis Children's Hospital.  Up until now the only children receiving pillowcases were cancer patients and so our donation has allowed the Hospital to extend the service to other patients as well. 

Lets not forget our amazing sponsors!

We were able to give away some fun prizes at the February meeting! 
Westminster Fabric scraps!
Elizabeth Williams Jewelry!
Reliable Irons!

Both of these wonderful members walked away with a Reliable Iron thanks to their
contribution of 20 pillowcases a piece.

Every Tuesday when I go to volunteer I hear more stories of who got which pillowcase...Such great stories..from the man who laughed so hard at the chicken pillowcase that he needed a breathing treatment to the man who refused to use the pillowcase because it was "too nice"..
