So, my job was to help sew 450 book bags for all incoming 2nd graders in the county. These bags were stuffed with assorted school supplies and later, the students will be able to pick a book or two to keep. We had over 1800 childrens books donated from local families and charity groups.
Okay, so it was handy to be a quilter. I gathered some other quilter help and we cut up all the pieces from bolts of ulpholstery and home dec fabrics in advance. Phew, that did help! We serged and sewed all the bags....510 of them.... in the first four days! I know, I had the easy job, but, I was exhausted!!
