Sew ‘N Sews Raise Funds to Keep Them in Stitches

Last Saturday, Presbyterian Village North’s (PVN) beloved sewing bunch, the Sew ‘N Sews, held their bi-annual Bazarr to help raise money for supplies to continue their charitable work.

This resident-led group works year-round creating stuffed bears, bunnies, ouchies, baby caps and more to pediatric patients at PediPlace. As a favorite non-profit of the Sew ‘N Sews, PediPlace provides healthcare for children (from birth through age 18) who are uninsured or who receive Medicaid or Children’s Health Insurance Program benefits.

In addition to the items they handcraft to give away, they also create a variety of handmade items to sale twice a year at their Bazarr. Some of the items for sale included holiday decorations, soup warmers, baby books and blankets, “darn-it” dolls, cosmetic pouches, wallets and more. A total of $1,880 was raised during the three-hour sale, and that money, along with a generous contribution from the PVN Foundation, will fund the supplies for the upcoming year.

The Sew ‘N Sews group is open to all PVN residents and meets every Tuesday to stitch and fellowship together. Contact Letty Valdez to inquire about joining this crafty crew. If you missed the sale and would like to purchase any of the handmade items, contact Janice Bentley at (214) 553-2511.
