Here lately I’ve been doing quite a bit of sewing. It all started on Sunday, May 8th and I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment! A few days before I had discovered the closed Facebook group Sew for Kids Volunteers. After reading through their blog, I knew it was a mission I wanted to support.
It’s not just for kids! The woman’s shelter, the Elder Center, and the Veterans are also in need for things I can create and send!
It’s like I’m obsessed with getting things done and mailed off to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation!
I’ve sent two boxes already in the USPS large mailers that “if it fits, it ships” for a bit less than $19.00 (the USPS taking my money said they would have cost over $40 EACH had I not used that special box!). They were filled with children’s books, several fun pillowcases I had made a while back, and a little dress freshly created:
Anyway, for me, it’s the perfect cause to use up my stash of fabric I’ve had for years!
Although I have a “door full” of items ready to mail, it’s not enough to fill up a box!
Once we got back from Dallas yesterday, I pulled out a tub full of fabric and will work through it this week…
I just found this list of ways to help provided by the Friends of Pine Ridge Reservation! So many ideas!
Now… off to get busy!
