Snowflakes for Sandy Hook

We all want to do something to help and this is a wonderful way for those of us that have embroidery machine.  Embroidery Library has offered a free design.  Mine are drying now.

Make a Snowflake for the Students of Sandy HookFree through January 10, 2013
Stitch a snowflake for the children of Sandy Hook

Words cannot describe the sadness and grief that we felt at the news of the Sandy Hook school shooting. Our thoughts and prayers have been with the community as we struggle to understand this loss.

Recently we learned of a great way to support the community. The PTA will welcome the students to their new school with a winter wonderland, and are asking people to send snowflakes to decorate the school.

You can read more about the effort at the PTA website here. If you have spare time this holiday season, please make a few snowflakes with this free lace design. Send snowflakes to:

Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514

Embroiderers are so generous with their time and talents. We know that together we can fill the new school with snowflakes. Please mail your snowflakes so that they arrive at the PTA office by January 12th, 2013. Thank you!
