Participants in the Sewing for Fun program have been busy this fall making beautiful quilted blankets for the SPCA and placemats for Meals on Wheels.

Sewing for Fun is a program that is offered by the City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture Department that teaches sewing to adults who have special needs.

Two programs take place Tuesdays at the Community Centre, and fabulous projects have been sewn over the years from fashions to crafts to quilts, pet blankets and placemats.

Sylvia Dutch and Irene Johnsen are the instructors. They and the dedicated volunteers come up with the sewing projects each week to enhance participants’ skills and confidence – and to inspire the smiles and the laughter each week.

Sewing for Fun welcomes volunteers. If you are looking for creative way to serve the community, call Judy Ridgway at 250-286-1161.

No sewing or quilting experience needed, just a desire to help others and be part of the fun.
