Last month, some members of our Guild got together to sew some pillowcases for children at the local IWK children’s hospital. Members donated materials from their stash or bought for the purpose, then mixed and matched what came together at a sewing day to produce much of the pillowcase batch you see in the gallery below. Some took material home or continued their sewing at home to finish off the large bundle of over 90 pillowcases that you see below.

In the past, individual members of the Atlantic Sewing Guild have made donations to the Jamii Foundation for their work in Africa. One of the Jamii Foundation’s members, Candice, is currently in Kenya, and Faye Morrison would like to share news with the Guild members about how these donations has come to fruition as Candice continues her journey.
Members can get updates on Candace’s work and journey on the Jamii Foundation blog
. Faye will try to have Candice come to a spring meeting of the Guild to talk about her work and journey.
In the meanwhile, Faye would like to personally thank everyone who donated fabric and sewing of pads at home to the Jamii Foundation. From the photos on the Jamii Foundation blog, you can see many of the pre-sewn pads being used for training, and sent home with precut kits after the girls and other sponsor organizations have received training on how to do so.
This will be an ongoing project and if anyone wishes to continue to collect fabric or do further sewing of the pads. Candice would really appreciate it in anticipation of her next trip. You can bring donations to the Atlantic Sewing Guild meetings to give to Faye or you can contact Candice at the Jamii Foundation via email at jamiifoundation at Hotmail dot com (spelled the usual way, this is to avoid spamming them).
