Operation Pillowcase

Operation Pillowcase is an ongoing service project aimed at sending a pillowcases to our troops serving in Afghanistan. Our guilds goal is to send 200! If you interested in helping, we are making standard size pillowcases in medium & dark flannels & cotton prints. You can do a internet search to find many different construction techniques. They can be made on a serger or your sewing machine. Whichever your comfortable with. I'll be collecting & mailing them as long as your making them, so have fun!
Check out this earlier blog entry for more info.
Any questions, you can either email or call... Thanks Teresa
