Sew Crazy, Fletcher’s Homemade sewing event planned for Aug. 7
Published 1:14 pm Tuesday, August 4, 2020
Sew Crazy joins forces with Fletcher’s Homemade, 510 East Elk Ave., Elizabethton, to help those recovering from various forms of cancer with the sewing of drainage aprons at an upcoming event! Join the group this Friday, Aug. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Fletcher’s Homemade for an evening of sewing and light refreshments. These easy and quick aprons to make will already be cut out with sewing machines set up (feel free to bring your own). There is no cost to attend this event that brings so much help to the many in need within the Tri-Cities area.
The aprons will be donated to the Cancer Center at Holston Valley Hospital and distributed to both men and women by Ballad Health in October.
Sew Crazy is a Johnson City nonprofit sewing organization celebrating their 10th year of sewing for others in need. 2020 marks the 9th year of making the mastectomy aprons — the group’s most successful and requested item. The goal for 2020 is 200 aprons and the group needs the help of anyone who is interested.
The use of face masks and social distancing is encouraged for this event. Hand sanitizer is available for use. In order to help plan for the event, the group requests that you respond with your attendance.
Please call Lisa Fletcher (Fletcher’s Homemade) at 206-979-7811 or Donna Horowitz at 423-434-0424.
