Sock Drive and Making Cards and Pillowcases for Veterans at the VA Hospital

Friday and Saturday our wonderful customers came in to make holiday cards for the Veterans at the VA Hospital.  Everyone learned some new skills with using steam a seam and fabric, stamps and inks.  Downstairs, in the Pfaff Shop, Pat was busy teaching how to make the pillowcases and we are getting closer to our goal of 120 pillowcases. 

Come out this Wednesday as we could use your talents to make more pillowcases and cards.  We still could use some white tube socks too.

We package a new pillowcase, a pair of socks and a hand made card for each Veteran.  Some go to Pat's Place (Local Vet meeting place) and they distribute them to the local nursing homes for our Veterans.  For some this is the only gift they receive and it is nice to let them know that they are not forgotten.

Stop in and sign some of the cards so they are more personal.
