Like the rest of the nation, we sat and watched in horror at he events that unfolded in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012. We wanted to help, but not sure how. We received an email from Patrick Lose today asking if we would help spread the word of Comfort Pillowcases for the kids in Sandy Hook. Two local quilt shops are trying to collect a pillowcase for each of the 700 students in the school. If you would like to make a pillowcase or 2 for the kids, please send to one of the quilt shops below.
