Donna shares her secrets on the elusive “travelling sewing kit.”  This applies to the tools that might be used most often at a meeting when the Sew Crazies are sewing. A kit should have:  fabric scissors, thread scissors, assortment of hand sewing needles, basic threads (black, white, tan, red), seam ripper, tape measure, sewing gauge, assortment of needles for your machine, 2-3 bobbins, tweezers, small screwdrivers (flat and phillips) and bandaids.  A few misc. buttons, chalk, a dime and nickle (for buttonhole placement) are also handy.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Stockings!
It’s tradition for Sew Crazy to start their Christmas project in the middle of summer, and this year was no different. The group started in June cutting and stitching what will be 125 large and lovely Christmas stockings which will be donated to Dawn of Hope.  Each stocking will be filled with small gifts and goodies at the December Christmas meeting, prior to delivery in time for Christmas. This is a big project for Sew Crazy, and any and all help will be greatly appreciated.  If you would like to donate items or money to buy items to fill the stockings, contact Donna at info@sew-crazy.org or call her at 423-434-0424.
Cancer caps part of October project
Sew Crazy will be sewing cancer caps and mastectomy aprons as part of its annual observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The soft, colorful caps and aprons will be donated to Holston Valley Cancer Center.  Sew Crazy is the only group in the area to sew the mastectomy aprons. Sewers completed over 40 caps and aprons during this one-month project.
