• Make a difference Day, January 19

    Posted by Marilyn Lewis, M. on 1/19/2014
    Sunday, January 19, Students from Vanden's National Honor Society came together to cut fabric and sew it back together again to make quilts for kids in crisis.  They worked together with Binky Patrol, a national non profit organization that makes and gives quilts to kids in crisis..  When asked why they were willing to give up three hours of their Sunday afternoon, they each had a different reason.  Some said they liked sewing, or liked the idea of helping others who were less fortunate.  Some said they wanted to help a child sleep better at night.  One said she wanted the children to be able to tell stories through the quilts and the fabric helped make up better stories with the pictures on the fabric.. 
    Most of the students had never sewn before and all left having had a great time.  Everyone spent the three hours laughing and learned a new skill.  All the students said they would come back to help again.
    Binky Patrol meets the 3rd Sunday of the odd months from 1-4pm at A Quilted Heart in Vacaville.  You are welcome to join us.  If you want more information, you can talk to Mrs. Lewis in S6.
