Sewing guild donates to ACCESS
The American Sewing Guild's Southern Oregon chapter will donate handmade quilts, pajamas and other handsewn items to ACCESS at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22, at the ACCESS Olsrud Nutrition Center, 2020 Cardinal Ave., Medford.
The donation will be made during the guild's holiday tea. A news release from ACCESS says guild chapter members put in about 6,000 hours of sewing time during the year to make the garments and quilts. In the past, they have created hundreds of handmade bags filled with goodies and supplies, all donated to seniors and the disabled.
The guild also donates to other area organizations like Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center's pediatric ward, the Maslow Project and St. Vincent de Paul.
"We look forward to the end of the year to share our common love of giving handmade items to those less fortunate," said Southern Oregon chapter membership coordinator Alma Gates. "It's so rewarding to see how much our efforts are appreciated."
