Last Wednesday I used my new studio for a mini-pillowcase day. Kay's sister is involved with hospice and had asked Kay to make pillowcases for her clients as part of a Christmas event. Kay provided the fabrics and had done most of the cutting. Janet and I provided some of the labor.
Here's Kay pinning one of the cases. She pinned all of the cases. I serged all that we finished that day. Janet ironed all of the fabric, turned the pillowcases and then ironed the finished projects. The 3 of us finished about 14 cases. Kay was able to pin the other 7 so all she had to do was sew them up.
