Learn How to Sew a Pillowcase

Berwyn, IL

Lisa Polderman of PoldaPop Designs will host a free Pillowcase-for-Charity sewing class at Unity Lutheran Church in Berwyn. You will learn how to make a pillowcase and you may have time to make two! Sewists of all levels are welcome, including complete beginners. You must be willing to donate one handmade pillowcase to the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital.


Supplies will be provided at class but you will need to bring your own sewing machine. If you don't have a sewing machine, please contact Lisa as there will be a few extra machines available. Can't attend but want to help? Please consider donating fabric/thread, your time (to help cut fabric), or your sewing machine (just for the evening!). Pillowcases will be donated to Rhonda Buss' pillowcase drive for the Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Tacoma, Washington. You can read more about the drive on Rhonda's blog ( Please RSVP to Lisa Polderman at or 708-738-7299.
