Oxford United Methodist we would sew pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer and we would do it at the Farmer's market!
Did I mention what a great outfit the ConKerr cancer folks are? They aren't into the whole "send us money" deal, instead, they say, sew us a pillowcase and donate it to your local coordinator for distribution in your local area. What a concept!!
"Our fuel is love – ConKerr is fueled by a simple act of love – making a pillowcase for a sick child struggling with cancer or another life changing illness. Everything else is details." from www.conkerrcancer.org
I precut the fabric to the size suggested at the ConKerr Cancer website. I de-stashed some fabric from my own "collection" and Pastor Diane also liberated some from her "personal fabric store". We had 23 pillowcases ready to sew. I sewed a few for display examples and then we sewed 10 pillowcases during the farmer's market!
Kids came and sewed, here's Caitie with her finished bunny pillowcase. She also helped sew a 2nd pillowcase too!
It was a beautiful day at the Farmer's Market with some wonderful music to sew by, and we will be doing it again next week to finish off the fabric. Here's the link to the Oxford Farmer's Market. Come see us on Monday August 19 from 4-6 pm. You can sew too!
