Making pillow cases for long-term residents

Here’s a project you might want to get in on to ease your urge to sew something.

Michelle Delaurier of Iroquois Falls is leading an initiative to supply pillow cases to the three long-term care homes operated by the MICs health care group.  That’s South Centennial Manor in the Falls; Villa Minto in Cochrane; and  Matheson’s Rosedale Centre.

She heard of similar projects in other places… and considers this a chance to make pillow cases more homey than institutional bed linen.

“I had to get approval from all the management in there for, I’ll call it quality control, to make sure we meet all of their standards,” she assures potential volunteers.

You can participate by buying fabric at either of the fabric stores in Iroquois Falls and Cochrane, sewing and eventually ironing.

“People can choose what they’d like to sew. We just have specifics – obviously nothing scary like all the Halloween things.”

You can call or text Michelle Delaurier at 705-232-5445 or look her up on Facebook.
