Sew-In at Spoonflower Greenhouse in Durham, NC ...

Cause for applause .... 


Another smile-making Sew-In at Spoonflower Greenhouse in Durham, NC was held on June 13th 2015.   This year's turnout was well attended.  Everyone made a pillowcase  (some 4 -5) from our youngest at 4 years to our oldest in her 90's. We had a male design student and a 7 year old boy!   A fantastic time making new friends while creating pillowcase smiles for the children/families of Raleigh/Durham.  Thank YOU, Spoonflower for ALL the smiles :*)

It was an act of kindness. "Just pass it on" she said as she left the store.  Things like this keeps me going.   Signed Ellen, Volunteer 

So, for all those ...
