Sewing Service Project

Our service project for Scottish Rite Hospital was a huge success. We had so many sisters donate fabric, cloth diapers, ribbon, thread, and most of all their time and effort. We were able to complete quite a few baby blankets and burp cloths at the event, but also many sisters brought home fabric to finish up. I am in awe of how many we were able to get done in a short amount of time. Thanks to all! Katie and Lindsay were pumping out those burp cloths in no time!

Lauri cut fabric while Carolyn and Pip rocked at the sewing machine.

This ducky and frog pattern was one of my favorites.

Renate and Cathy liked to be called, "the youngins."

I'm not sure what Katie was saying, but it must have been important, or just entertaining.

We had two irons going, keeping up with all the fabric and blankets.

Gail and Stephanie REALLY didn't want me to take this picture, but I had to capture their committment to their task of cutting. It can't be that comfortable on the floor!

I tried to catch Judy in action. She's doing a great job! Doesn't she have such beautiful hair too?

Rose brought some adorable pink fabric and made darling blankets.

Here's just a fraction of the finished products. We had much more by Sunday.

Thank you to all that participated. We look forward to taking these over to Scottish Rite.
