For 19 years, the FPC Sewing Group has been a fellowship and service small group that helps others in our church, community and internationally by using our sewing talents to aid special groups with unique needs. Non-sewers contribute invaluable aid in pressing, cutting out, pinning, etc. We would love to have you join our group which generally meets on the first and third Mondays from 10 AM to 3 PM in the Multipurpose Room. We do easy projects suitable for beginners to learn to sew, such as tote bags, pillowcases and blankets! We have also added a 5th Monday this year for personal sewing, knitting, crocheting and crafts. All are invited to participate.
Sew Much Comfort: To look more normal while recovering or going back to duty or to other careers, wounded warriors who have lost limbs are asking for and we adapted uniforms or other clothing like jeans, shirts, jackets, shorts or slacks.
Boulder Crest Retreat at Bluemont, Virginia: A newer outreach which provides, free of charge, a country setting retreat experience for seriously wounded warriors and their families to reconnect and recover. We have provided tote bags, blank banners for art therapy workshops, lap quilts, plus toiletry kits for female soldier retreats.

The Lullaby Project –We have been making blankets or small receiving blankets which are being used by The Lullaby Project and Brother to Brother Foundation to provide birthing kits to groups going on mission trips where they are needed. The birthing kits include baby caps, a receiving blanket, a blanket and medical supplies for a safer delivery. Http://lullabyproject1.wix.com/lullabyproject
Ryan’s Case for Smiles – Pillowcases are made to cheer and delight young cancer patients.
We are also providing maternity tops for the Gabriel Project.
Women contribute their time and talents to this mission outreach small group. All are welcome and we could really use your help. We are open for other areas of need in our community. If you have some ideas or know of others who need our help, please let us know.
