Charity Sew Days
Join us as we work together to sew philanthropy quilts. There’s no need to bring anything–we provide sewing machines, fabric, and everything else you’ll need. You’ll get to pick a task you enjoy, whether it’s piecing, pressing, laying out, or cutting. This is a great opportunity to have some fun, do some good, and get to know other guild members.
