Sew-A-Thon - Returning to our area on February 11, 2018

Project aimed at helping girls around the world stay in school longer.
 
See pictures in our gallery from previous events.
 
The turnout was outstanding with over 75 participants - Thank you to our great community.
We will be making feminine hygiene kits for the non-profit organization Days for Girls International. Men, women and teens alike are invited to participate in this worthy cause.
 
The kits we'll be assembling provide the necessities that allow girls to stay in school longer (many are forced to drop out once they begin their menstrual cycles). No experience required!
 
We are also taking donations of gallon-size Ziploc freezer bags; girls panties, sizes 8-14, in colors (but no faces, including cartoon characters or animals); and small hotel soaps.
 
This event will likely be held at the Discovery Center in Maple Plain from 1:00 to 3:00 pm and is open to everyone.  Details will be confirmed as the date approaches.
