All of us know of someone who has had a child or maybe your own child has had to spend time in the hospital. These stays are hard for the families but are harder for the kids especially those kids who have to spend time in the hospital several times a year for several weeks at a time. It isn’t a fun time so we want to make these stays a little more pleasant and if a kid is sick there is nothing like something homemade to cuddle with or rest their head on!!!
Seams Sew Easy has decided to offer a free class the 1st Friday of each month starting in April (this would be the 3rd) from 5 P.M. to 10 P.M. Bring your machine and any scraps or yardage of fabric that you wouldn’t mind donating. We will have fabric to work with but any extra we can get will be very much appreciated and it doesn’t have to be kid fabric. Any pattern or solid color fabric will work great and cotton or flannel works best. We will be making summer quilts (quilts without batting), bed covers (smaller versions of summer quilts used to protect beds) pillowcases, shorts and port covers. We will have the patterns and trims for all of these items.
Also, be sure to ask your friends to join us!!! They don’t sew you say??? That’s OK. They can sort/blend fabric colors, cut fabric, rip out seams (when the sewers mess up) and iron. And who knows! They may decide by watching us sewers have such a great time they will want to sign up for more classes and join the fun!!!
We will be there from 5 to 10. Come stay the whole time or just for a couple of hours. Be sure to let us know if you plan to attend so we can set up for enough tables, irons and etc. to accommodate all who wants to help!
The class is free but we will ask you to chip in for pizza and help pay the SSE employee who is scheduled to work the class. You are welcome to bring a snack to share but it isn’t required.
We will be donating these to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and also the Dayton’s Children’s Hospital. Your help and generosity is very much appreciated!!!
