Allyhoo is looking for volunteers who can help with sewing some animal shaped pillows. Ideally we would like someone who is long term as it does take some time to train in. Give it a try for 30 days and see if you'd like to become a part of our team!
No experience required. We will provide training for basic sewing machine skills along with how to sew an Allyhoo.
Sew from our Shakopee store or from home in a room kept away from all pets.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide love & comfort to young patients at The Children's Hospital in Minneapolis & St. Paul, MN with goals to outreach further into the community.

Description

My name is Ally and at the age of 13 I was diagnosed with an unknown autoimmune disease with severe arthritis in all my joints as a side effect. At 15 I created Allyhoo, handmade, animal shaped pillows to help provide comfort to young patients during their fight. Our goal is to remind them that they are not alone and that they have people all over the country rooting them on.
