Community Service Sewing

Each year our chapter members share their creativity with the community.

We're gearing up for more charitable sewing and we hope that our members will keep alert to needs, especially for use in our community.

  

Past projects have included customized sheets, pillowcases, and toiletry bags for homeless women, padded hangers for the CSU Avenir Museum, book caddies for school children, Choose to Reuse bags for the City of Fort Collins, and carry bags for the Days for Girls charity.  The group's most recent project was the prep and construction of 45 hanging bags for walkers for local seniors.

As Seen in Our Chapter Meeting

November’s presentation to the Chapter was given by Chuck Kechter, Head Coach of Artisans Restorative Fitness (www.artisansrestorativefitness.com). He spoke to us about ways to adjust our posture and movements, as well as our work spaces, to improve and maintain our physical health while pursuing our crafts.
