Backpacks to benefit disaster relief
It’s another big project for Sew Crazy -- with all the hurricanes, wildfires and other natural disasters this past year we’re taking on a project for disaster relief.   The group began making drawstring backpacks at the November meeting, with the goal of completing 100.  At the March meeting, the backpacks will be filled with specific toiletry items and then donated to United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).  They’ll then be distributed by UMCOR whenever and wherever the next need arises. Donations to fill the backpacks are being sought.  Each hygiene kit is required to contain $1 to purchase toothpaste.  To cover that and the purchase of necessary toiletry items, monetary contributions are welcomed.  Hygiene items are also needed -- contact Sew Crazy to find out exactly what is required to complete the kits. If you are able to help, please send an email to info@sew-crazy.org or call Donna at (423) 434-0424.
Beginners to old pros alike can enjoy the variety and learn something new, all while enjoying the fellowship with other sewers.  At each meeting we also share a delicious potluck lunch that sustains the sewing energy! Take a look through the website to see where the Sew Crazy sewers have been and where they’re going next.  Or better yet, come join us at our next meeting.  We’d love to have you! Whether your passion is apparel, quilting, home dec, crafting or any other fiber art, Sew Crazy has something for you -- and a chance for you to give back to your community as well. This diverse group of sewers meets monthly to learn, sew and share their talents with each other and the community through charity sewing projects.  CASA, Crumley House, Wellmont Cancer Center and Mountain Home VA are just a few of the local organizations to receive donations from Sew Crazy. Do You Sew?
