The Fourth Annual Open House and Showcase for the Sew Fun after school sewing program is 4 p.m., Wednesday, May 15 at the Honokaa United Methodist Church. Light refreshments will be served.
Parents, friends and the public are invited to attend and enjoy viewing items participants have made during the past year, including quilts, clothing, pillowcases, purses, and other interesting projects.
This is the fifth year that ages 9 to adult have gathered on Wednesday afternoons from 1:3 to 4 p.m. to learn hand sewing and proper use of a sewing machine from adult volunteers. This year, each Sew Fun participant made a lap quilt that will be donated to North Hawaii Community Hospital in Waimea, and a long, terrycloth bib that will be donated to Hale Ho’ola Hamakua. Sew Fun is sponsored by the Honokaa United Methodist Church, individuals and community organizations. For further information, call the church at 775-0566.
