2nd Create and Donate - Unlined Tote Bags
Come Join us on Sunday, October 12 from 2-5 pm.
In September, we wound up making 9 bibs and collecting 11 packages of diapers for Solutions Pregnancy Center in Central NJ. I was blown away by everyone's generosity and willingness to help out! Here are some of those donations:
So, I'm excited to announce our next community event!
October's Create and Donate project is this unlined tote and food donations for an area food bank (specific organization to be determined.)
When: Sunday, October 12, from 2-5 pm
Where: Great Pacific Frame Shoppe, in Point Pleasant, NJ
Cost: The tote class is $30. If you donate your bag it's $25. If you also bring food items to place in your bag it's $15. There will be some supplies (fabric, webbing) available, but they are limited and handed out on a first come first serve basis, so reserve your spot today!
How else to get involved: if you don't sew, but would like to be involved, we are collecting non-perishable food items at the Shoppe, October 1 through 16.
What if you don't live nearby?
If you are a sewer and would like to make a bag and fill it with food items and donate to a collection site in your area - let me know! I have a tutorial written up showing you how to make the bags. I would love for you to be able to impact your community where you are in a meaningful way as well. Just make sure you take a picture and share! #dldcreateanddonate in all the usual spots.
For those who like to plan ahead:
November's Create and Donate will be zippered pencil cases for Operation Christmas Child
December's Create and Donate will be fleece hats and a warm clothing donation.
Hope to see you at one of these events!
