you have fun together! All skill levels welcome (if you know someone who loves sewing, please let them know
we’d love to have them!!) Donations of fabric, thread, sewing needles and pins graciously accepted.
If you can bring your own machine, or if you are willing to loan a machine, that can really help things run smoothly.

quarter yard of perhaps a different matching fabric for straps or pockets) or enjoy our selection of donated fabrics.
