Open Sew - Garment Makers SEW MUCH TO GIVE SEW-A-THON



Open Sew for Garment Makers HOLIDAY EDITION SEW-A-THON is dedicated to sewing polar fleece hats and mittens for those in need in WNY. Come in anytime between 2:00pm and 8:00pm on Monday December 12th and sew a gift of warmth. One charity has been identified thus far that is in need of these items (Journey's End Refugee Services). While we search for others, please feel free to offer your own suggestions. Participants can direct their gift of warmth to a number of charities we will vet over the next few weeks. 

Sharpen your sewing skills while helping those in need! Come in any time between 2:00pm and 8:00pm and sew up a hat or mittens in our studio using Michelle Frick's Lake Effect Hat & Mitts pattern (EASY/beginner level) and our premium polar fleece fabric and get the equivalent yardage for yourself. Ex: One lined hat requires 1/2 yard of poplar fleece fabric, you get the other 1/2 yard to keep for yourself. Want to sew two hats? You get a yard for yourself. Michelle and instructors will be on hand to guide you through the project. Pre-cut hats and mittens will be ready for you, or you can cut your own. PRIOR SEWING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION. The two Michelles and other instructors will be on hand to guide you through your project. 

Teens/adults only please.
