Volunteers Needed-January Work Group Weekend
Now that the holidays are over, we are busy getting back into the swing of things at TPP Headquarters. We are looking for volunteers for our January 2009 Work Group Weekend!
For those of you who have attended our past work groups, this one is going to be a little different. In addition to blankets, we will be sewing blanket sleepers for the UIHC NICU. These sleepers are a part of the NICUs new “Back to Sleep” campaign. Lessons for sewing the blanket sleepers will be provided. We also ask volunteers who own sergers to please bring them along!
**Potluck lunch will be served. Bring a small dish to share**
