And you can help!
The Christmas season is approaching and in the spirit of giving, we are asking you to donate a few hours of your time to make a touch quilt for an autistic child. These quilts are very easy to sew, you don’t need to be a quilter. The quilts help to ease the anxiety often felt by autistic children especially during stressful times.
We have had a request for these quilts.
All supplies and directions are provided, just bring along your sewing machine, thread and scissors, as well as your willingness to help with this worthwhile project. It will be a fun day, bring a friend. Goodies are included!
Dec 6 and/or Dec 7, 10 – 1. The class is free if you donate a quilt to this cause. Call the shop at 613 838-5541 to sign up!
