Welcome to our Chapter. We hope you will join us in helping children feel better to heal better.

Upcoming Events:

Early Spring Greetings to all our pillowcase volunteers!  Three sure signs of spring are crocuses popping out of the ground, robins dotting fields and yards, and pillowcase parties!

We can’t control the first two, but the third is our specialty.  Below is the list of pillowcase parties we’ve scheduled so far.  All events are 10 am – 2 pm unless otherwise noted.

Fri May 24, 10:30 – 2:30, Quilt Bug Quilt Shop, 3637 Carman Rd, Schenectady. Call to Reserve – Space is Limited 888 817 6577

Bring your sewing machine, lunch, and a buddy.  As always we provide the pillowcase kits and chocolate.  If you have any fabric or completed pillowcases you’d like to donate, we’ll gladly accept them at the events.

Drop us an email with any questions.  We look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events!
