Hello Everybody!!! Welcome back to our week three update of Sewing to Rebuild, a month long effort to reach out to the victims of the OK tornadoes to show that our thoughts, love, and prayers are being sent in a tangible way. If you are new to the Sewing to Rebuild concept, click HERE to learn more - Entries can be mailed off and entered into the flickr sewing group until 6/21 - so you still have plenty of time to sew up an outfit, a bag, a lovey, etc... Thank you all for being involved!!!!
So in our flickr group this week we now have 342 Photos!!! BUT WAIT... If I add in the additional items (of which there are 56)- That brings us to a grand total of 398 - almost FOUR HUNDRED items have been sewn for OK!!!! My heart is so full. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
If you have arranged a sewing group in your town, please let me know I'd love to hear about your stories and share them!
*Don't forget that bags are still in great need including Purses, Diaper Bags, Totes, Backpacks, etc...
