Event description

Description

GBACG is sponsoring a day to give back. Please join us to sew fleece hats for cancer patients and those who have lost their hair due to brain surgery, burn wounds, etc. GBACG will provide patterns , fabric, and thread. You are most welcome to bring your own fabric if you prefer, and any trims you might want to use. We will also supply lunch and be on hand to answer any sewing questions. All hats produced will be donated to the South Bay branch of Headhuggers (http://www.headhuggers.org/).

Want to help but can’t make the sew-along? We are gratefully accepting donations of fleece fabric (polar fleece, not fake fur or sweatshirt fabric); just bring it to our Open House on January 21.

The sew-along will be led by GBACG President Catherine Scholar, who lost a sister and a dear friend to cancer. This event is for Diane and Karen.
