Let’s add a little joy to the world, one stitch at a time at SEW GIVE BACK 2018!

This year we have a very special project planned for SEW GIVE BACK.  We’re linking with Simple Simon and Company and sewing skirts for local girls in Foster Care to wear on their first day back to school.  To read more about Skirting The Issue click here to read the latest blog post.

How do I participate?

This event is free and open to the public. Thimble Bee’s Sewing School will provide every participant at SEW GIVE BACK with access to a sewing machine and all necessary sewing tools to complete one project for charity.  We ask that you bring the materials to complete one skirt (or more if you’d like!)  We’ll also have a School Supply Drive for local students in need – any donations will be much appreciated!

Our goal this year is 25 SKIRTS by the end of the day, July 30th!  All skill levels are welcome from children to adults, beginner to advanced.  Don’t sew?  Not a problem, you can cut fabric, measure, iron, or package the completed skirts.  We hope to see you there!
