Sew and Sews

Monday, November 19, 2018 | 10:00-12:00pm

Pinkie Puppets is now the Sew & Sews! The need for our dear puppets is no more; we are re-inventing ourselves and invite you to join us. We are making medical dolls; baby, children, and adult bibs; children’s pillowcases; foster care bags; and wheelchair and walker holders—much more diversified than before. There is a lot of machine sewing, basting, pinning, and cutting. All skill levels can be put to wonderful use. Donations of fabric, thread, and anything that could be used for our new projects would be greatly appreciated.
