Sew Good Together
SPUR and the Seacoast Quilters' Guild create pillowcases to be used as Bundles of Cheer for our annual Holiday Cheer Drive. For those who may not be aware of this drive, SPUR fulfills wishes to children who could use some holiday cheer and adults who may be experiencing homelessness each year, through individual sponsors. Each sponsor receives a wish list that includes items the recipient wants, needs, items to wear and something to read along with a hand-sewn pillowcase. These pillow cases are filled with presents and then given to those recipients as Bundles of Cheer. Learn more about the Holiday Cheer Drive here.
These beautiful and colorful 3-piece pillowcases are created throughout the year at the SPUR office. There is no commitment and we provide day and night sessions each month.
Are you interested in joining us but have no experience with sewing? No worries. We have professional sewers that are happy to teach you the entire process. Also it is important to note that there are so many non-sewing tasks during these events including cutting fabric, sorting fabric, matching fabric, pinning fabric and ironing-lots and lots of ironing!
If you are interested in getting involved by sewing pillowcases at home, please contact our Director of Volunteer Engagement, Bryan Lamoreau at [email protected]
