March 2023: Charity Sewing

The Colorado Chapter met in March to make receiving blankets for the Baby Boutique at the St. Joseph/National Jewish Hospital in Denver.  Enrollees in this program earn points by attending classes on having and caring for a baby.  These points are used to purchase items like the receiving blankets we made. 

Our chapter made double-layer flannel blankets from 84 yards of flannel purchased on sale for $2.40/yard.  The fabric was cut by one group of members. The remainder of the group aligned layers and edges serged together.

We had planned to take a break and discuss chapter 2 of Angela Wolf’s book How to Start a Home-Based Fashion Design Business.  But, we were making lots of progress on the blankets and no one had joined by zoom, so we decided to postpone that discussion for a future meeting.
