Charity Sew In – October 4, 2023

Wednesday October 4, Sewing for Sale, 2:00–5:00 pm. Clean up and take a break for dinner and be ready for our usual evening meeting as doors open at 6:00 pm.
Help fill our Farmers Market booth and learn tote bag techniques! Lynn Ray will demo bag construction. Bring your usual sewing supplies, and if you wish, fun fabric that you think would be good for a bag. We will be suppling fabric if you don’t bring your own.

Thank you to all the sewers who came to our September Strip Sewing day. I’m looking forward to see the finished quilts we all started. We still have many strips left! If you’re ready for more strip quilts, check out our page of links for free patterns and inspiration.
Please direct all questions about these sewing days to Roberta at
