Donation Sewing Circle

Join us for an evening of sewing for our veterans!

The finished projects will be distributed throughout our area benefitting our various veteran organizations.  Come and be part of the assembly line!  There will be conversation, laughter and the satisfaction of letting a veteran know they are not forgotten.  But the main thing is to have fun and be together!

There well be both hand and machine sewing work.  Please indicate your preference during registration.

Sewing starts at 6:30 PM, but doors open at 6:00 PM to allow time for setup.


  • Pillows - this activity consists stuffing small pillows and whip stitching them closed.
  • Quilt Binding - whip stitching the binding to the back of a quilt.
  • Add blanket stitch to star block.
