We love doing good things for charity whenever we can so this last Saturday, May 18th, we had our annual Sew Crafty Craft Fair. Families set up tables in our studio with their handmade crafts and treats and we opened up shop and invited the whole community in! All of the Craft Fair proceeds from this event went to Girl Forward.
Wondering who Girl Forward is? GirlForward provides adolescent refugee girls with individual mentorship, educational programs, and leadership opportunities; creating a community of support that serves as a resource and empowers girls to be strong, confident, and independent.
We invited the Girl Forward girls for a night of crafting a few weeks ago. It was so fun to meet all of them and teach them how to sew. On the day of the Craft Fair we invited them back to have their own table set up in our studio to sell the crafts they created.
The Craft Fair was another success and we ended up raising a whopping $1,040.00 for Girl Forward!
We plan on having another Craft Fair to kick off the school year in September. Please let us know if you and your family would like to be part of the event!
Many thanks to all the families who attend the event and for all of their hard work and time. It was a pleasure to have you all!
Can’t wait until September,

Welcome to the all-new Sew Crafty Studio website! We can’t believe it’s finally here!
It’s been a labor of love and we’re so proud of finally having things up and running. Being a crafty, do-it-yourself business, we thought it was important that we created a site on our own and now that we’re finally finished we couldn’t be more proud! There are probably a few bugs here and there but bear with us over the next couple of weeks as we iron out all the kinks.
Please spread the word that the site is finally up. Show it off to all of your friends and family. Can’t wait to hear what you all think!
Make sure to check out all of our wonderful Summer Camp options! We’ll have the kids busy all summer long!
