January 24 Charity Sew In information

Our first 2015 charity sew in day will be held Saturday, January 24 from 9:00am to 5:00pm.  You may come for all or part of the day, but please limit your planned sewing projects to quilt donations for our current chosen charity - breast cancer treatment and surgery patients at Centegra Gavers Breast Center in McHenry County.

The location of our sew in:

St. Paul's United Church of Christ
485 West Woodstock Street
Crystal Lake, IL 60014

The church is located directly across the street from North Elementary School.  As you are facing the church from Woodstock Street there is a driveway on the right leading to the rear of the church.  Use this drive to enter the property, park behind the church, and enter the building from that parking area.  The building doors will not be opened for us until 9:00am, so please DO NOT ARRIVE EARLY.

After we have entered the building and set up, the doors will be locked.  So if you will be arriving later in the day you will need to alert someone already at the sew in to come to the doors and let you in the building when you arrive.  One of the Executive Board members will be present at the sew in at all times.  

If you have not already signed up for this sew in, please email us directly at crystallakemqg (at) gmail (dot) com so that we know you are coming.

If you will be arriving later in the day than 9:00am please email us directly and provide your cell phone number so that we can give you a number to call when you arrive.

What you need to bring:
  • Supplies and materials to work on your charity quilt projects including sewing machine (if needed) and extension cords
  • Lunch and non-alcoholic beverages to get you through the day (there is a refrigerator on site that we may use)
  • Cushion for your sewing seat if needed.  The chairs we'll be using are not padded.
Thank you for all your efforts in making comfort quilts for the patients in treatment at Gavers.  We've touched quite a few lives already, and there are many more local women being diagnosed every week.
