Sew Day

Supplies that volunteers can bring or ship to us for our sew days include:

  • Material (2 yards is a good starting measurement and remember to wash ALL material first)
  • anti-pilling fleece
  • flannel
  • denim
  • quilter’s cotton
  • Ribbon – gros-grain works best, but anything 100% polyester or nylon is good too
    • Sleepsacks use anything from 3/8 inch wide to 5/8 inch wide (By the yard length – at least 24 inches per sack)
    • Hammocks use anything from 5/8 inch wide to 7/8 inch wide (By the yard length – at least 20 inches per hammock)
    • Cuddle Baskets use 3/8 inch wide
  • Thread – polyester or cotton thread is preferrable
  • Elastic – no wider than 3/4 inch
  • Plastic barrels (from pretzels, cheese puffs, etc)
  • Cash donations for shipping costs
