The first time I walked into St Bridget’s Church, I stood there trying to look beyond the disrepair and tried to imagine, “What can I do with this space?”. The first thought was ecumenical and inviting people to sew for a variety of charities.
On November 1st, we hosted our 1st sewing day. Sewers were working on pillowcases and pajama pants for Mid Maine Homeless Shelter, baby quilts for Newborns in Need, full size quilts for the veterans program Cabin in the Woods, others were cutting, ironing, and sorting donated fabric. At the end of the day, people took projects home to work on, find fabric to match pieces, etc.
There are so many good people in the world!
