Ms Tarello’s 7th grade students at Oliver Winch Middle School in South Glens Falls are having a great time making pillowcases for the Albany Chapter.



We had so much fun sewing recently at Saugerties Library. Check out the photos and article from the Daily Freeman News here.




Annual September pillowcase party at the Duanesburg Reformed Presbyterian Church.  10 volunteers, 5 hours, 1 great lunch = 70 pillowcases.  Fun was had by all.





Thanks to Ms Shafran, her Rondout High School life skills students, and staff for the wonderful pillowcases they made recently.  Lots of smiles for lots of kids.

Thank you to the members of the Wiltwyck Quilters’ Guild and Kingston Kohl’s Associates who came together at Grace Church in Lake Katrine to create pillowcases!





Thanks to DeSanti Family Dentistry, dentists and staff, who hosted a fun and productive pillowcase event!
