October 17, 2020

All entries for this year’s Service Project must be received at any McDougal Sewing Center location on or before October 17, 2020.

This year for our service project McDougal Sewing Center is going to do things a bit differently.  We are going to combine a contest that will allow you to explore your creativity as well as a service project. We have selected two populations that are underserved, the elderly, and children in the foster care system.


We will be making bibs for the elderly that will be donated to nursing homes and meals-on-wheels. We have selected a pattern for two different types of bibs. You can take a look at the patterns at Men’s Necktie Bib  or   Ladies Pink Plaid Bib


We will be making “bags of love” to donate to children that are entering the foster care system for some reason or another. You can take a look at this pattern at Sew-a-Bag-of-Love.

Our hope is that you will make several of these items in either one or the other categories or even both, bring them all in and then pick out the one you want to submit to our contest. We are working on basic samples to demonstrate the projects.  I know many of you have been feverishly making masks to donate.  I hope that you will take the opportunity to switch gears a bit and help us to make an elderly person or a child’s life just a bit better with something that you have stitched with love.  Of course, you are more than welcome to create and donate these items without submitting to our contest.
