    Sewing for Charity

    My current project is sewing re-usable sandwich/snack and shopping bags and selling them. 100% profits go to American Cancer Society's Central Vermont Relay for Life. It's my 6th year participating in the RFL. Once this project is done I can finally attempt my first quilting project. I think it will be a handbag based on MSQC's tote tutorial.

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

    What a great cause!! Is this something that other sewers can get in on or is it local only?? I wonder if we can get a forum started for charity contact information so we can share the various charities we all sew for since I know there are several of us who do projects for charity.....


    oh Al.......dear.....sweet.....loveable.....Al....cou ld we pretty please get a charity forum???

      I think a charity section on the forum would be great - with links to places like the RFL, Ronald McDonald, hospitals, the pillowcase challenge, pillows for mastectomy centers, etc., centers for abused women, homeless
      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

              This is a great idea. I just saw on Quilts for Kids that they need boy themed quilts.

                Good Morning-

                I think it is a great idea to list charity groups. Suzette- my mom and I recently started working with Quilts for Kids (our local chapter in Mass) and am loving it! They are looking for boy themed quilts so we care focusing our energies on those. I have 2 sons so I have plenty of leftover "guy" fabric that I am incorporating along with the fabrics they bring to the meetings.

                  Hi Everyone ,
                  I made a trip last year to a orphanage in Kenya, were i worked with the children for 2 weeks as a Volunteer,
                  as much as i would love to go back to the children it is very expensive , so this is a way of either raising funds
                  or sending quilts to them, hope i get the hang of quilting very quick , it could be the answer to helping the children.
