While taking my sewing class at Bernina In Stitches my instructor introduced me to a local sewing group that uses their sewing skills for good.The group definitely has their heart in the right place. I decided to attend one of there sessions. The range of skill set varies from beginners to pros.
While attending we were given a project: To make 70 men vest by January for Haven of Mercy, a homeless shelter in Johnson City, TN.
The Mission: The mission of Sew Crazy is to preserve the history, creativity and passion of sewing and fiber arts. This is accomplished through education, charitable endeavors and fellowship among sewers of all ages, interests and skill levels
Sew Crazy is a group of sewists who meet monthly to work on projects to benefit the community, be it cancer caps, stuffed animals for children’s programs, or cat hammocks for animal shelters. Now beginning their sixth year, the group is supported by both monetary donations as well as donations of materials that come from many sources such as retiring sewers, estates and also by a local shop, Bernina In Stitches. The group is open to sewists of any experience level and anyone who would like to learn more is welcome to attend a meeting.
Whether your passion is apparel, quilting, home dec, crafting or any other fiber art, Sew Crazy has something for you — and a chance for you to give back to your community as well.This diverse group of sewers meets monthly to learn, sew and share their talents with each other and the community through charity sewing projects. CASA, Crumley House, Wellmont Cancer Center and Mountain Home VA are just a few of the local organizations to receive donations from Sew Crazy
Sew Crazy is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
