Not my usual 'Friday Finds' post today because I have one final thought about the SewExpo . . . .
Their charity for the event was Mary Bridge Children's Hospital & Health Center in Tacoma WA. They serve All of SouthWest Washington state with their mission to provide care for all children, regardless of the family's ability to pay. According to Barbara Littrell, of the hospital, "Every child who comes to Mary Bridge gets to pick out his or her own pillowcase. That pillowcase often becomes their comfort item--something they can take with them when they have to go for tests . . . you'll see children holding their Sew Expo pillowcase as they sit in chemotherapy chairs or get rolled down the hall for surgery. Of course, the children take their pillowcases home with them--which means Mary Bridge needs about 900 pillowcases a month."
(I've been sew into reporting on the SewExpo that I forgot to do a post that I promised, about my productive day with this turtle yardage! Watch for it on Monday!)
