Punch Pals Fill 21 Toiletry Bags for Charity
The Punch Pals machine embroidery bee created and beautifully embroidered 21 toiletry bags and then filled them with necessities for local women's shelters. Items included shampoo, cream rinse, toothbrushes and paste, comb, lotion, and more. The group plans to continue making these bags as long as their supplies last. If YOU have small size toiletries to donate, Sue DeMasellis will be collecting donations at the Material Girls table at our guild meetings. Please help!
Often a victim of domestic violence is forced to leave her home with just the clothes on her back. The Village Quilters can help this situation -- by sewing a simple toiletry bag, and/or collecting toiletries given to us by hotels as we travel. Constructing a makeup bag requires only a zipper, a fat quarter, and less than an hour to make. Even a very simple drawstring bag with a few necessities would be appreciated by a woman who, on some given day, unexpectedly has close-to-nothing at her disposal. Any and all efforts are appreciated!
And if machine embroidery is in your "wheelhouse", consider joining this bee to find out about all the other fun things they're doing!
Thanks Village Quilters!
