Last Tuesday we held a workshop at That Sewing Place and asked for Volunteers to help sew blankets for the NICU/Ronald McDonald House Charities Family Room at the Markham Stouffville District Hospital as part of our Giving Back for 10 Campaign.
We were overwhelmed with the response and had a full house in both classrooms sewing up a storm!
We want to thank everyone who contributed to our cause. From the suggestion, to organizing the workshop and providing lunch, to the donations of fabric, washing, drying, ironing, cutting, folding, and of course, sewing and completing the blankets, we want to thank each and every one of you for your contributions! We could not have done this without you!
Our goal that day was to complete 60 blankets that will be given to families with babies at Markham Stouffville District Hospital, but our busy sewists wouldn’t stop at 60, and the next morning, Jaret accompanied by Karen Williams (a regular volunteer for the M.S.D.H.) was happy to present 102 blankets to Danielle Giokas, Family Room Coordinator at the RMHC Family Room at Markham Stouffville District Hospital (M.S.D.H.).
Please accept our gratitude once again.
