Sew We Care


Teacher: Barb Bilenki

Every last Monday of the month

1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Sew We Care has been part of Carellan Sewing Centre for the past 13 years. In the past, we have had ladies get together to sew for others whenever we received a request.

In the fall of 2006 the ladies at Carellan decided to make a monthly charity event. On the last Monday of each month from 1 – 3 pm, the Sew We Care ladies meet at Carellan and sew for others. The sewing projects have benefited a wide variety of groups. We have sewn a wide variety of projects including mitts for inner city schools, cosmetic bags for women’s shelter, and ears for the Teddy Bear’s picnic. The size of the group can be as small as 4 or as large as 14. We have ladies who are the sewers and others do the cutting. Bernice always brings the cookies, and Barb puts the coffee on. The ladies have clocked well over 1500 sewing hours in the last 6 years. We are always looking for new projects, so if you know of someone or a group needing our services please call the store. This is an open, drop in group. If you are free the last Monday of the month, please do drop by.
