Snowflakes for Sandy Hook Elementary

UPDATE FROM THE CONNECTICUT PTSA:

Thank you to everyone who has donated snowflakes on behalf of the children of Sandy Hook  Elementary School and the community of Newtown. We know that each snowflake represents the emotional outreach of the person making it. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity from around not just the country but the world. At this time, we have enough beautiful snowflakes to blanket the community of Newtown. Therefore, with regret we must close the snowflake project to further donations.

  4. Thank you for your generosity in providing the snowflakes for Sandy Hook. HAve a blessed Merry Christmas

  5. This is a great project that and I would love to participate. What is the due date for the snow flakes to be delivered?

  6. I could not get the first four to work on my Bernina. Do you have a format that would work for me?

    Thanks!

  7. I would love to make an Angel quilt for you to hang up in the Elementary School in remembrance of those who were lost. Is it possible to send me a list of names? Each Angel would have a name of a child or teacher. Please separate the adults from the children for me. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Hugs,

  8. PLEASE NOTE THEY’VE ASKED FOLKS TO STOP and are trying to get that word out. They can’t warehouse, sort and use everything they’re getting. The local United Way Rep strongly suggests folks find those in need in their own community and make / give something for them, “Isabel Almeida with the local United Way, “while the town is grateful for all the support, Almeida said, it has no more room for those gifts”. Instead, she encouraged people to donate to others in memory of the Sandy Hook victims. “Send those teddy bears to a school in your community or an organization that serves low income children, who are in need this holiday season, and do it in memory of our children,” she said.”

  10. Thank you very much for the lovely snowflakes. I’m brand new to this embroidery, having just taken my first class on Thursday. So I’m excited to practice some more with these pretty snowflakes.

  11. Just saw this … plan on making the snowflakes this w/e so as to get them mailed before January 12th. Thank you for such a great way to show our support.

  12. Thanks so much for the beautiful snowflake designs. I will get mine in the mail in a day or two.

  13. Thank you so much for the designs and the wonderful idea. I am most anxious to give some amount of pleasure to the devastated town. I think it is wonderful! Anxious to start right away. Tomorrow morning I am buying a ton of white thread! But for the Grace Of God, it could have been one of my children or grandchildren lost that day. How do you go on from a deep tragedy like this. May God Bless everyone who gives of themselves for someone else. That is the way it should be!!!
