Calling all sewing enthusiasts in Santa Clarita. Come join us for a community sew-in at the Centre Building – Oak room, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita 91350.

There will be three opportunities to participate:
Saturday, Aug. 24, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m
Thursday, Sept. 5, from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m
Sunday, Sept. 8, from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

As part of the Girl Scout Gold Award project by Jessie Nilsen, we will be sewing a variety of projects to benefit SCV Veterans, the SCV Senior Center, and The Painted Turtle camp. Sewing experience is not needed. This is a free event; all materials will be provided. This is open to all ages. We will have experienced sewers on hand to assist.

This is a Girl Scout Gold Award project in conjunction with the SCV Quilt Guild (SCVQG), and it’s all about the community helping the community. The overall goal is to bring the community together to help those in need.

The SCV Quilt Guild promotes the art of quilting through sharing, friendship, education, and meaningful service to the community. The guild preserves the profile of an American folk art that is vulnerable to being lost as a traditional home arts form. Every year, the guild sews projects to benefit people in need in the SCV community. This Gold Award project is an outreach program, to educate SCV residents on how the SCVQG helps the community, and to give SCV residents an opportunity to be involved in helping too.

Space is limited, so if you would like to attend, please RSVP to jnilsengoldaward@gmail.com.
