2013 Coats & Clark Charity Event

In May, I went to Seattle for the 2013 Sewing & Stitchery Expo Planning meeting.
You will be hearing MORE ABOUT OUR PLANS in the coming weeks.

Things will be moving pretty fast now. Yesterday, Ann Sagawa received over 300 emails with new class descriptions from teachers all over the world. IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT SHOW...
On the last day of my May visit to Seattle -- I got together with Barbara Bartolatz-Littrel and she gave me a tour of the Tree House -- where families can stay when their children are in the hospital.



During my tour -- it was thrilling for me to see our pillowcases in every patient room....

Yesterday, I received an email from Sharon Stone -- along with this picture. Her friend was at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and snapped this shot of a basket full of pillowcases. Last year, with the encouragement and support of Coats & Clark -- Sew Expo attendees made 4,580 pillowcases for the children being treated at Mary Bridge!!


Here's a little video I made...



We are DELIGHTED that Coats & Clark will, once again, be the sponsor of our Sunday Charity Event.

AND THERE WILL BE SOME BIG, BIG CHANGES...you're really not gonna believe it...

Next week -- I'll be able to WRITE ALL ABOUT IT...
