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.

Girl Scouts! Are you or your troop looking for a worthwhile community service project that you can do, all the while learning a creative and fun skill? Sew Crazy is looking for you! Sew Crazy has helped Girl Scouts turn old t-shirts into tote bags, an upcycling project that resulted in sacks for their cookie sales. Other beginning sewing projects may also be available for your troop to try, depending on the age of participants and purpose of the project. Let Sew Crazy help you get started. Contact Donna Horowitz, director and sewing instructor, for more information. Phone (423) 434-0424 or e-mail email@example.com.
