What could be better than spending a little time with your sewing friends creating a cheerful pillowcase for a sick child? ConKerr Cancer is coming to Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Baltimore (Hunt Valley), Maryland! Together we can stitch fun pillowcases to bring smiles to sick children.
ConKerr Cancer is a non-profit organization with a mission to brighten the lives of children battling cancer and life threatening illnesses by giving them colorful, cheerful handmade pillowcases.
Even if you’ve no time to sit down at a beautiful Bernina sewing machine while you are at the Expo, you can make a monetary contribution or join a local chapter. Check out their website at www.conkerrcancer.org.
Cindy Kerr, the founder, is an avid quilter who started ConKerr Cancer after her son Ryan passed away from cancer. She made him a cheerful pillowcase each time he was hospitalized. Then Cindy made them for the other children in the oncology department. It is truly an inspirational story which she has taken her love of sewing and has created an international mission for children. More information may be found at www.conkerrcancer.org.
