First ConKerr Pillowcase Finished

I just finished the first pillowcase for ConKerr Sacramento. For the main part of the pillowcase I used a power tools fabric leftover from my son Robbie’s Carpenter’s Wheel quilt. For the border I used a hot dog fabric leftover from my brother Rob’s R-O-B-C quilt. The inside of the border is an orange fish fabric that reminds me of Goldfish crackers. The pillowcase is really cute!
I’ve got several more to make today and tonight for tomorrow’s delivery in Sacramento. The pillowcases will be distributed by ConKerr to child cancer patients in Sacramento area hospitals.


  1. Hi, I am Koren and I am part of a club for stay at home moms here in Elk Grove, CA. I came across your blog while doing a search for Conkerr. We chose to donate pillow cases to them but wanted to know if you have suggestions on contacting them versus sending an e-mail thru their directory. Would you happen to have a contact number? Your pillow cases are lovely, by the way. Thank you.

  2. Koren,

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I contacted Kathy Bismson & Suzanne Hayes, a couple of very nice ladies, in Fair Oaks by email:

    Initially it took a couple of weeks for them to reply, possibly due to the Christmas holidays, but after that their response was pretty quick.

    I do have a couple of phone numbers, but they are home and cell numbers. I'd suggest you try to make contact by email first. If you don't get a response after a week or so, please contact me again and we'll go from there.
