    I posted a topic a couple of weeks ago...my parents were coming from Iowa for a visit. Mom and I sewed a lot while they were here in Florida. We made a "quillow" for our sailboat, 10 min. table runner, purse for mom, and a few pillow/gifts for Give Kids the World foundation(about 50 more to do). Here are a few of the projects we accomplished.

    Isn't it wonderful to share your talents with each other? Tell us more about the Give Kids.... organization.

    Give Kids the World is an organization here in Fl that gives a week of Disney to terminally ill children and their families. They also receive gifts each day, and one of them is a small pillow with a stuffed animal stuffed in the pillow pocket. Volunteers sew/donate the small cases and the pillows are provided by the org. I think they may be tiny hospital or airline pillows. My good friend volunteers there and asked me to sew for them. If you are interested in donating these cases, here is the # for info 407-396-0770 or go to www.gktw.org/volunteer. I'm not pushing this...just passing on info that was requested.
    You can get 4 cases out of 1 yrd. of flannel and 12 novelty pockets from 1 yrd. of fabric. They're easy to make with scraps you have on hand.

    Thanks, sounds like a worthy cause. I think you can post this info in the Topic List--opportunities to donate.... section, too.
