NEWS & EVENTS

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

Upcoming Events

Our 9th Annual Sewing Event at 1st Presbyterian Church in Fulton, MO will be held on Saturday March 14th. Our “make-up” day (in case of bad weather) will be Sat. April 4th from 9:00-2:00. Please bring your machine if you wish to sew, but we also need non-sewers to help with other tasks. Bring any pre-washed fabric you might want to use, or use what we will provide. We’ll start with coffee and goodies, but you’ll need to bring a sack lunch to keep you going for the afternoon. Call or E-mail ( glbeasley@charter.net) me with any questions. Hope to see you there!

Congrats to the ladies at “Quilt 4 U” who sewed tirelessly during the month of March to make 1968 pillowcases for the “Million Pillowcase Challenge.” They took 2nd place in the nation for number of cases sewn! Included in their generous donations to non-profit organizations, was our Mid-MO Chapter of CFS, which received 150 bright smiles! Many thanks to all of you!
