2017 Charity Project is: Venice Area Pregnancy Care Center "Sew on your Own" and helping Girl Scouts earn their sewing badge.
Helping Girl Scouts Earn Sewing Badge
Twenty-two members of Girl Scout BrownieTroop #138 in Venice are earning their sewing badges this winter with the help of several ASG members from the Sew Chic Neighborhood Group. Jenny Brannon, the Venice troop's leader had requested some help with this badge. The troop meets twice monthly at the Venice Bible Church.
To meet the sewing badge requirements, the scouts will be making seaside door hangers out of felt, travel tissue holders and sewing card samplers with a variety of hand stitches and a quilted potholder project. The scouts are ages 7, 8 and 9 years old.
Sharon Bain is heading this project with the help of Jeanie Cimon, Debi Erbes, Irene Ferguson, Joanne Eckinger, Barb Armstrong, Bonnie Dunn, Peggy McAuliffe, Marti Plageman and Jan Loy who are lending their time, skills and supplies to help all the girls succeed.
Hopefully, the sewing badges will be earned before the Girl Scout cookie sales begin in March!
