PILLOWCASES

Hello Ladies,

Today I dropped off the 30 pillowcase made for our outreach programme to Home Instead Senior Care. In addition to providing care for seniors in their homes, they have programmes in long term care in hospitals and run the "Be A Santa To A Senior" programme so that many seniors, who would not otherwise receive gifts at Christmas, are not forgotten. I have personally participated in this programme for many years.

They were thrilled to receive them and assured me that the seniors in their programmes will also be thrilled to receive one.

Regards,

Mary Van Dijk

Hello Ladies,

Yesterday, (June 2015) I presented the Mt. Sinai Hospital NICU with 83 "Snugglies" from by several members during our Outreach day. You can see from the smiles on the two nurses in the picture how happy they were to receive them. At the left of the picture is Josaphine, Jocelyn's Primary Care nurse and on the right is Marianne Bracht, Parent Resource Nurse/RSV Nurse Coordinator, NICU. I presented them to a room full of nurses from the NICU team and spoke a little telling them how our members helped to make these snugglies. I was so touched by their reception and all the hugs, smiles and thank yous I received.

Thank you to all of you who helped make this happen. This is what Outreach is all about!

Dear Elaine,

We had a wonderful day of sewing. There were ten of us, with lots of laugher as we finished each baby bib and modeled it. There were some new quilters that joined us, its a great way to get to know people.

We came home with 33 baby bibs finished and a dozen pencilcase/makeup bags.

A lot of kits quilters took home to finish more.

Thank you everyone.
