A Good Day for Flannel!

2015-2-25 Fabric SalesThis is what makes me Happy: Boatloads of flannel, purchased with the very kind donations we receive every week.  This was just one of two stores we visited (and cleaned out!).  After assembling 800 kits last Saturday, we needed to replenish for our next events.  Today flannel was 60% off plus an additional 20% for senior citizens.  We are ready for another month of kit making!  Thanks to all who have helped and who continue to help every day.

I came home from this shopping outing to find another beautiful pile of goods at my door (some of which have already gone out for one of our events tonight).  Jill Lloyd from Highland donated her serger, saying “you can put it to better use than I can.”  Another friend working at a fabric store said they were retiring 5 pair of scissors and asked if we could use them.  The answer is YES.  I  am overwhelmed with joy, every day at the goodness of women around me.2015-2-25 DonationsThis morning I received a call back from a lovely lady named  Gayle in Salt Lake who advertised an industrial cutter on ksl.com yesterday.  It will cut 4″ of fabric at a time.  I’m told it’s a $1000 machine. In a message, I told her what we do and how we’d like to use it.  Today she asked if she could donate not one, but TWO cutters to our Days for Girls cause!  I was thrilled.

There are miracles that surround this work.  If you have not yet gotten involved, you really must.  Your life will never be the same! (and your porch will never be as inviting and beautiful)!  And miracles will follow you wherever you go!2015-2-25 Cutter
