Stitching Snowflakes

Have you heard about the Snowflake Drive for Sandy Hook Elementary?

The Connecticut PTSA for Sandy Hook Elementary school are asking for donations of machine embroidered free standing lace snowflakes to transform their new school into a winter wonderland when the students return after the new year. 

Baby Lock, Designer’s Gallery Software, Amazing Designs, and Embroidery Library have teamed up to offer FREE embroidery designs for anyone and everyone who would like to help.

Free designs here and here and here

 Use the heaviest Solvy for your project.  
  It took about 45 minutes to stitch out one snowflake.  I made the largest size which is about 5 x 5".  So far I have just made three.
These are from Embroidery Library

The snowflake request is for any and all snowflakes, so any donation is welcome. 
All snowflake donations should be sent by January 12 to: 

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

  1. Very kind of you to make some snowflakes for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary. Tropical Cabanas is a name I haven't heard yet for the clue #5 unit. It has quite a few names now. :-) Your Tropical Cabanas look very nice. Merry Christmas!

  2. I am making snowflakes also, I feel for those kiddos that had to go through that. I like your Name, Cabanas!! that will do good for me too..

  3. I love your chains of pieces. I've had a few of those too, and I almost hate to cut them apart.

  4. The snowflakes are beautiful. The little beach huts look great. Looking forward to clue 6. Merry Christmas.

  5. What a cool idea, tropical cabanas! I never thought of that but yours do look as if they belong on the beach!
