April Showers Bring May Flowers

Our April meeting ,Service and a Potluck Lunch, will be held at Lynn Rawling's home at 601 E Bridger Lane at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 5 .
We will be making "Comfort Pillows" for people in the hospital (a small long, thin, pillow that cancer/hospital patients use during various hospital treatments or procedures). To make the pillows, you use a 12" length of flannel or fleece. You can mix & match co-ordinating fabrics. So if you have flannel or fleece pieces in your fabric stash that you would like to use, bring them. Or you can purchase a yard or two of flannel or fleece to bring. Or you can just come and help cut out and sew. I have attached a photo of the Comfort Pillow for you to see - Lynn says, "They are really easy to make!"

We will also be collecting 3 1/2" or 4" or 5" squares of flannel. Paula saw an add on from a lady in Provo who needs flannel squares for blankets she makes for High Risk Moms. The health department nurses visit new moms who are "high risk" (because of poverty, teenage, etc. - various reasons). They take the blankets as a gift when they go to visit them.

We will have scraps left over from the Comfort Pillows that we can use to make these squares or you can bring any other small flannel scraps you have.

What to bring:
  • Flannel or fleece (at least 12" long and 36" wide)
  • Cutting mat, ruler and rotary cutter if you have one
  • Potluck Dish
