Come help stuff the stockings for kids in need!  This year we are stuffing
pillowcases!  Saturday, November   
We have found that it was sometimes difficult to get all the gifts we had into the stockings,
which tended to be too narrow for coloring books and other larger items.  Therefore, we
are making pillowcases in winter-themed fabrics and stuffing them instead!  Use the same
pattern that we use for charity pillowcases.  If you need directions, email Dottie at
mcandmac@comcast.net and she will send it to you.
