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.

Pillowcases we create will be taken to Fletcher’s Homemade in Elizabethton where we’ll offer them for sell to fund Sew Crazy, and also to
showcase the work this wonderful group of charitable sewers accomplishes.There’s be fabrics that will appeal to children as well as to adults, all of which will be available at the meeting.Sew Crazy will be continuing the pillowcase project for a while. Additional pillowcases will be collected for donation later this year.
