Be A Difference Maker Charity Sew Day

Be A Difference Maker Charity Sew Day -  Be a difference maker! Join the Cotton Blossom to sew for the foster kids in our community. Often children are taken into custody with only a plastic garbage bag to hold their belongings. These traumatized children deserve better. You can make a difference by joining with others to sew a simple but attractive bag and learn some serger skills too! All of the bags will be donated to children in a local foster care agency.
