Sew Fun open house and showcase is May 21

Sew Fun after school sewing program will be holding its Fifth Annual Open House and Showcase at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, May 21. Light refreshments will be served.

Parents, friends and the general public are invited to attend and enjoy viewing items participants have made during the past year. Quilts, clothing, pillow cases, purses, and other interesting projects will be proudly displayed by those participating in the program this past school year.

This is the sixth year that ages 9 to adult have gathered on Wednesday afternoons from 1:30-4:00 p.m. to learn hand sewing and proper use of a sewing machine from adult volunteers. After four initial projects, participants select and design the projects they would like to make.

This year, each Sew Fun participant made a lap quilt, which will be donated to North Hawaii Community Hospital in Waimea and a long, terrycloth bib which will be donated to Hale Ho’ola Hamakua. Sew Fun is sponsored by the Honokaa United Methodist Church; and, is grateful for the support of various individuals and community organizations.
