We love to “sew for good” in the Greenhouse, our classroom and community space here at the Spoonflower HQ, and we are so excited to announce a sew-in to support Quilts for Kids! Quilts for Kids is a national organization that sends patchwork quilts to children in need, donating 30,000 quilts annually. That’s a lot of sewing, and we’re ready to help!
If you’re in the North Carolina Triangle area, please do join us in the Greenhouse to sew quilt tops on Saturday, September 20, from 10am-1pm. Our local chapter will be bringing 100 pre-cut kits to create simple patchwork quilt tops. Our chapter organizer, Bonnie, will take all of our completed tops to quilt with her team of longarm quilters. All ages and all sewing levels are welcome at this event, and you can come when you can and stay as long as you like! Head over to Meetup for full event details and to let us know you’re coming!
If you can’t make our sew-in, you can still help! Head over to the Quilts for Kids website to find a local chapter, make a donation, request a kit to complete at home, or volunteer.
The generosity of the crafting community never ceases to amaze us, and we can’t wait to see you here in September to sew for a great cause!
Thanks so much,
