New year, new chances to sew!

Sew Good Goods event next week!

Sew for a good cause! Every second Tuesday we partner with Sew Good Goods to make projects that benefit the community and the world. 

This month we're meeting on Tuesday, January 10 to sew baby blankets for a hospital in Uganda. Read more about the organization below.

Register for the event here! You can choose your 2-hour time slot!

Can't join us? You can sew at home - this project is simple! 1 yard of flannel and 1 yard of cotton broadcloth sewn right sides together and turned.

The Ruth Gaylord Hospital Maganjo is a nonprofit hospital in Uganda that opened in 2013 and named after a retired Minneapolis school teacher. It is preparing to celebrate its 10-year anniversary in February. Though it has evolved into a general hospital comprehensive in scope and this year had nearly 50,000 patient visits, its principal focus remains maternal and pediatric care. Last year the hospital assisted in 450 deliveries.

MISSION: to provide self-sustaining, affordable and equitable community-based health care services through a dedicated and professional workforce.

In this community, women come to the hospital with nothing, and they leave with nothing. We aim to send these mothers home with one nice thing for their babies - a soft blanket handmade with love.

Sewing for Ukraine Update

Thank you to all who sewed and donated hats for Ukraine this fall!

As you can see, we were able to send many, many hats thanks to your generosity.

The final shipment left yesterday for Krivoy Rog, a city in Ukraine that has been close to the bombings, but has so far been spared. Electricity and heat are sporadic, so more warm clothing has been very appreciated! 

Decor and More!

Check out the new fabrics in our home decor section!

We always prefer to carry home dec fabrics that can make great garments, too, and these are no exception!

The heavier weight makes them perfect for pants, jackets, and bags.

Shop them here!
