Night of Service

My friend Stacie invited me to speak to the women of her church congregation for a Relief Society Night of Service. We enjoyed a dinner of fake Cafe Rio deliciousness, I spoke for about 20 minutes, and then the ladies fired up their sewing machines to make 108 diapers for families serviced by the Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah!  They were able to finish 75 onsite; volunteers collected the rest to finish at home during the week.
Of course, I can't go anywhere without my trusty assistant.  It was really nice for her to catch up with a friend.... and make tortilla snowflakes.
Several women donated flannel; aren't they so adorable?  A little fabric goes a long way!  Did you know that (if you are very very extremely careful) you can make 8 "big" diapers and 8 tiny diapers with just one yard of fabric???  That's what my sister was able to pull off, though I can't claim to have had the same success...
One of the evening's Super Sewers works as a nurse in the Labor and Delivery unit at IMC.  She delivered all the diapers to IMC herself and knows just how needful they are for the tiny angels and their families.  I am so glad we could be a part of Service Night!  Thank you, Stacie, for the kind invitation, amazing food, and wonderful evening with your neighbors!
