  • Charity Sew-In

    Once again, we'll be making hats and mittens for the public school children. These donations are very much appreciated, and we're very grateful for your help. Plan on joining us on one or both days. Please bring your sewing machine. If you just want to cut hats and mittens at home, feel free to stop in for a pattern. We just ask that you have all cutting done and returned to the store by the dates listed above.
    As of this newsletter, we are not in need of fleece. Donations of 1/2" elastic would be very helpful. Please drop your donations off at the store.

    Lunch will be a pot luck. Please bring something to share. Plates, napkins and silverware will be provided.

    If you can't come both days, please join us when you can. Even if only for a few hours. We'd appreciate it if you would call the store to let us know which days you can help.
