Upcoming Sewcials

Community Outreach- Pillowcases
Come join us for the Community Outreach Sew-a-thon. Maren Larson will be teaching the magic pillowcase pattern. Then you can make a pillowcase from one of our kits to brighten the room of child in the ICU at U.C. Benioff Children’s Hospital. You can also sew quilt backs, bind quilts, or quilt tops. If you love to design, you can make up quilt kits for others to complete or you can take a kit and make the quilt. We will have something for everyone. Join us for the full day, or for whatever time you have – all are welcome and needed. Many hands make fun and light work! Lunch provided. No cost.
