Community Service Projects
Afghan refugees are settling in Iowa. Central Iowa Chapter is working with refugee settlement programs to support Afghan women's requests for sewing supplies, fabric and machines. We are offering our time to help distribute materials and to help women with their sewing.
Bubble Ball is a local gala fundraising event for children who have special needs. Elaborate costumes and props are made entirely from bubble wrap.
Dolls and toys are favorite sewing projects for many Chapter members. We're busy collecting and sharing bits of fabric to sew this year's batch of toys.
