Ditty Bags Update

The community sewists sent Claire home with 126 ditty bags for Operation Shoebox.  We had a lovely lunch provided by Claire of Greek lemon-chicken soup and tzatziki on pita bread.  It was a wonderful break.

How much fun did you have making the pillowcases?

How fast can you deplete your stash? Here's another feel-good option.

Each month Cindy Zamirowski ships out homemade fresh new pillowcases to our deployed troops.
Please note that we only ship NEW pillowcases. Do not send used pillowcases.
Email Cindy @ of your wish to participate. Her shipping address will be forwarded to you.
All "Pillowcases" will be shipped to Cindy in the states to be included in upcoming boxes to the Troops along with any special message you may have. Of course, you can always join one of our Teams and ship in your own Goodie Boxes, too!
The next deadline for receipt of Pillowcases is Wednesday, October 30th!
