Sewing Angels Group Seeks Participants 

Ryans Case for Smiles

The Sewing Angels group at Ten Mile Christian Church has been making pillowcases for St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital for 10 years as part of a national organization called “Ryan’s Case for Smiles.” 

Recently, Idaho lost its coordinator for this group. 

“The hospital still wants the cases, so we are working on a plan for a couple of us to take over the coordinator position,” said Ellen Landreth, who is a member of Sewing Angels. “We’ve had such a great time building relationships through this project that we are hoping to enlist other churches to begin a sewing ministry also.” 

The hospital needs 200 cases a month and one group alone can’t make that many, Landreth said. The basic cost per case is $10, she explained. 

Other groups are sought to join in the ministry. “We will help them get started by inviting them to observe our group and the ‘assembly line’ we use.” 

Any groups in other churches wishing to participate in the pillowcase project should contact Landreth at (208) 761-4237 or [email protected].
