Community Service Sewing
Use Your Sewing Skills to Give Back to Your Community
ASG Santa Rosa sponsors get-togethers where we make items to donate to non-profits and community organizations. Past items that we have made include quilts for Project Linus, pillowcases for Social Advocates for Youth, cough pillows for surgery patients, doll clothes for Stitchin' for Kids, pods for newborn babies at Marin General Hospital and walker bags for low-income seniors. Our members continually donate hours, skills and supplies to a variety of causes such as bird rescue, repairing fireman's protective gear and knitting hats for newborn preemies.
Bring Your Sewing Machine and Join Us.
Our next Walker Bag Kit making day is Monday, May 28th (Memorial Day) from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Village Sewing Center, 1455 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa. Bring a rotary cutter, straight edge ruler, scissors, pins or pattern weights. We'll supply the rest. We hope to see you then!
Walker Bags for Seniors
We are currently sewing walker bags for seniors. Our goal for 2018 is 200 walker bags. Ask for a kit at our next meeting or from DJ Colbert or Carole Hamann. Or download our instructions to make a bag from your own fabric.
Here is a "Thank You" message for the walker bags in a newspaper article. See the 5th paragraph.
