In August Julie taught us how to make Fabric Cards.


Lou is collecting cards made by members in the Sarasota area and Terry is collecting cards made by members in the Bradenton area. Julie is collecting them from members in the Venice/North Port area. 


All the collected cards will be distributed to Pines and Venice residential care centers.


Please count your hours and submit them to Jan. 



We donate thousands of hours each year to community service sewing to meet the local needs of people. 

Please send Jan your items and hours.

What is an NG? Its a Neighborhood Group!  

We are real people meeting in real buildings to sew real things. And we have a blast. So take a moment to step away from the world of virtual reality and mosey on down to your nearest NG. Better yet, bring a friend with you!
