Calling all sewers

Special Needs Recreation is looking for volunteers to help in its sewing program for people with developmental disabilities.

Rose Loves Sewing and being creative.

Special Needs Recreation is looking for volunteers to help in its sewing program for people with developmental disabilities.

Sewing classes are Tuesday or Thursday afternoons from 12:30 to 2:30 for seven weeks, starting Jan. 20.

“We aim to make our programs fun and successful,” says Heather Crites, co-ordinator for Special Needs Recreation. “In sewing, we have small numbers and an instructor with each class; and each participant works with a volunteer. Each participant gets the support he or she needs, and we are able to produce some amazing projects.”

If you sew and are able to donate a few hours a week to work with a great group of people, call Heather at the Lewis Centre at 250-338-5371.
