A Common Thread

A Common Thread is thrilled to partner with My New Red Shoes, a charity that provides new shoes to homeless and low income students. We are pleased to open our classroom to volunteers who will be sewing simple bags for the shoes to go in. We will be taking donations of 100% cotton fabric in prints suitable for students and completed bags.  Come into the store to get the specifics if you or your group would like to sew up some bags. For more information on this wonderful volunteer charity, go to www.mynewredshoes.org

The third Tuesday of each month, 10:00am to 12:00pm.  Just bring your machine and a heart to sew.
