A brief history on how Sew & So got started… Approximately 10 years ago, Faye Ruehling asked Tommye Cashin what CCW could do to raise money its St. Francis Xavier Scholarship Fund. Since Tommye was a quilter, her response was to make a quilt and raffle it off. This was the start of many quilts…

Since then, while quilting, it was learned that many of our parishioners had other talents; such as knitting, crocheting, beading, sewing, etc., hence the name ‘Sew & So’.

Many hours have been spent making prayer shawls, bonnets for newborn babies, rosaries for the prison ministry, and more.
Sew & So has made among other things, 200 ditty bags for Haiti; 100 ditty bags for CCW to give to International Seafarers House; 40 reusable bags for St. Vincent de Paul’s pantry; 175 squares for Quilts of Valor (wounded veterans –https://www.qovf.org/ ); over 50 throws for Magnolia Manor; and, crib sheets, burp cloths, wash cloths receiving blankets and baby hats for Skylark (formerly CareNet of Brunswick – https://helloskylark.com/).

Many wonderful deeds have been accomplished!
