Inspiration from Cheryl 
"I was on the Chanel website and saw a black sequined & embroidered Chanel tee listed for $6450.  The Prada website shows a tank for $995 and an embroidered tee for $1270. Just think of how many tees you could sew & embellish for th
at amount of money?"

Our Chapter Sew-In was held at the Arlington Public Library in Riverside. Several baby layette sets and Angel Gowns were cut out and some sewn to completion. Many cut out items were also signed out so members could take them home to sew as time allows.   Items will be donated to the Riverside University Health Care Systems Hospital.

March 31 2023, Chapter News:  


“Inland Empire chapter members have been busy at their recent Sit 'N Sew meetings sewing not just for themselves, but also making items to donate.  A quilt was made for the Veteran's Hospital, while Angel Gowns are in process, along with other baby items.  And we also hear of a special shoutout to Sunny for bringing brownies.  Yay, Sunny!  May every chapter have a Sunny in their midst!"

Angel Gowns are beautiful custom-made baby gowns that are given to families who have lost a baby and are used for final photos and burial services.
