Sew Good Goods Event at Treadle!
Treadle Yard Goods partnered with Sew Good Goods for June’s Grand Old Days Grand Meander. Thank you to all who purchased pillowcase kits and those who took advantage of our classroom space and sewed them up for immediate gratification! Because of your generosity, we sold 50 pillowcase kits and raised $350 for Sew Good Goods.
Join us as we again partner with Sew Good Goods to benefit individuals and families in transition. Treadle will open our classroom for an afternoon of sewing, socializing, & treats.
What: Sew Yo Baby! Bibs or school tote bags.
Items are pre-cut - all you do is pin & sew!
Sewing machines will be fired up & ready to go!
Where: Treadle Yard Goods classroom, located at 15 S Hamline Ave., St Paul
When: Friday 3:00 - 7:00 September 23. Join us for as long (or as short) as you like.
Please call Treadle 651-698-9690 to reserve your space.
Walk-ins also welcome!
Who: Advanced Beginning Sewists age 14 and up.
Cost: Free! Treats provided and all those participating will receive a discount coupon for Treadle fabric.
Why: Sew Good Goods is a local non-profit that embraces the notion that in creating and giving hand-crafted goods a unique connection is made and shared. Yo Baby! Bibs will be donated locally to families in transition.
School tote bags will be sent to CWS to be filled with school supplies. CWS works with partners to eradicated hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world. School kits give children in impoverished schools, refugee camps, or other difficult settings some of the basic tools for learning.
Don’t sew, but want to help? Treadle will be accepting donations of school supplies to fill the finished tote bags.
