Day of Caring & Crafting

Every November the charity groups affiliated with Sew 'n Save get together at Roma Lodge to make items for gift baskets to be presented to homeless Veterans receiving services at Veteran’s Programs in Union Grove and Racine.

Watch your emails for requests to donate items to help fill those baskets!


 
Relay for Life


Every year Sew 'n Save hosts a Fiber Arts Rummage Sale to benefit the Racine Chapter of Relay for Life.

We accept book donations year-round. After our Spring Open House, we take in donations of Fabric, yarn, machines, notions, and fiber art kits. Clean out your stash for a good cause, then come and shop the sale to find some new treasures!

Make sure you are on our email list so that you don't miss our notifications!
