Barb Johnston, who recently gave up her charity Quilts 4 Cancer, can’t stay away from charity work. Participants should get prepared for her next project.

She will hold her first Community Sewing Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at NyECC.

The project is a multi-tasking workshop to benefit the homeless students here. Johnston said, “It’s a very simple sewing task to make fabric drawstring bags for the students.

“There will be some hand work for those who cannot sew. Anyone who can, is asked to bring machines or surgers.”

She said fabric can be purchased from Stockert’s Crafts on Basin Avenue. The fabric is already cut to size. The “fat quarters” are on sale for $1.

Johnston said the project also needs all types of fabric half-yard or larger and sewing notions.

There will be a box to collect socks for the students and personal care items such as toothbrushes, shampoo, Kleenex, toothpaste, etc. Call 751-5356 for more information.
