Today the IMPACT group sewing kindness met. We made pillowcases for those with cancer. First, we watched a video explaining how to do this. Then, we got to work pinning, ironing, and sewing the pillowcases. We will complete the unfinished pillowcases on IMPACT week.
For the January meeting of Sewing Kindness IMPACT group, we began to sew pillowcases. We started off by watching the instructional video on how to sew these pillowcases. Today’s goal was to introduce to everyone how the pillowcases are made. We will finish making them during IMPACT week. Since these pillowcases are going to children with cancer, we had to modify the pillowcases a little. We can not add an accent piece because it could cause irritation to the children’s skin. I was amazed to hear how many pillowcases are made each month for children with cancer. This makes me even more excited about the work we are doing and how this group is IMPACTing our community.

Sewing Kindness has really taught me how far you can go with sewing. It is so much more than sewing a pillowcase for your younger sister. This past couple of weeks, we have pinned fabric to prepare to sew and sewn toiletry kits for women. These toiletry kits are extremely simple but so impactful for women in need. Today we pinned and sewed pillowcases for children with cancer. It is amazing how something as simple as a pillowcase and a woman's toiletry kit can brighten someone's day. I have loved learning how to take something so simple and making a big difference with it.
