UPDATE:

May 1, 2020

The response to our mask kits and mask supplies has been incredible- and our supplies are dwindling. The last day to be able to pick up mask kits and supplies will be Saturday, May 9 - which means you need to place your order by Wednesday, May 6 at 11 am.

Thank you for your support, and stay tuned-SewGreen Rochester will continue to evaluate and adjust our programs as the COVID-9 situation unfolds.

Thank you for the overwhelming response to help to make fabric masks.

 

Over the past couple of weeks, we have sold over 150 mask kits and close to 100 yards of fabric including single yards and totes of large scraps.

We are Online!

To Our Dear Community:

I get messages each day of positive support from the community and people looking toward the future. Our sewing peeps miss us so much! 

As a deacon, I am concerned by the effects of anxiety on people mentally, physically and spiritually. If we can help to keep ourselves grounded in crafts, it is good to extend that as much as we can.

 

Zoom, a free video conferencing platform, is proving to be a great help in isolation. We are offering several of our free clubs through Zoom. Click on the Online tab above for all the information.
