The Holdrege PW would like to make pillow cases and stuffed animals to give to C.A.S.A. for ages 3 years up to 18 years of age, both female and male. We are asking for fabric that would be suitable for these items. Pillowcases with prints that would be eye catching for various age groups and genders. The stuffed animals are made from 2 pattern pieces, so there isn’t a lot of piecing to be done. Sewers could sew the animals together and visit a friend (shut-in) at their home or nursing home and have them stuff them. Right now, Holdrege has about 18 children ranging in age groups from 4 to 18 years, both male and female. Kearney has over 120 children. The teens like the stuffed animals just as much as the younger ones. C.A.S.A. the sewer can put a tag in the pillow cases and on the stuffed animals with their Child Abuse Hot Line number on it for the children to call if their placement is not working out. I can be reached at [email protected] or 308-337-8212 (if I don’t answer, leave a message). I have plenty of patterns for the animals that I can hand out or mail out and I have instructions for the pillow cases that can be handed out, mailed out or emailed out. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
Sincerely, Darline Watson
