COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT
Spend a day of sewing with friends to help the Potato Head Project which helps parents of very premature babies. We will be sewing little leggings that moms can put on their babies while in the hospital. Regular machine or serger will work. There will be lots of cutting and pinning as well so if you don't want to drag a machine come anyway. If you have small print knits or ribbing fabrics these can be used.
Depending on how many people come and how quickly these are going, we can take some time to do fidget lap blankets, which are simple lap size fabric with buckles, buttons, zippers, different textures etc. These are used at the VA hospital and many nursing homes for people with PTSD or Dementia to help calm them by keeping their hands busy. Any misc. lace, ribbon, buttons etc can be brought and used.
The media is being notified in hopes of promoting both the project as well as ASG.
