Charity Sewing Day

  • January 23, 2023
  • 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • St. Trinity Lutheran Church - Clarkston


Registration is closed

Have you ever thought to yourself… "I would love to make a quilt from start to finish!"  Or "I'd really like to make a quilt for charity"?   Maybe you are a little intimidated to try out quilting on your domestic sewing machine and are afraid of messing up.  Charity Sewing Day is your chance to learn how successfully finish a quilt on your own sewing machine and provide comfort to someone in need!

Marilyn Flowers will be teaching us helpful techniques for sandwiching your layers, pin basting, and machine quilting using your own machine with the help of masking tape. 

We will gather on Monday January 23 10-3 at St. Trinity Lutheran Church 7925 Sashabaw Rd. Clarkston, MI 48348. Enter at the back of the building. There is plenty of parking and easy access to the sewing area. A deli lunch tray will be provided. 

If schools are cancelled anywhere in the area (West Bloomfield, Clarkston, Waterford, Birmingham, etc.) due to bad weather, this event will be cancelled.

What to bring: 

Sewing machine

Walking foot with guide

Neutral thread

Basting pins

Basic sewing supplies 

We have several quilt tops that need to be finished before they can be donated. We will provide batting and backing. Please RSVP if you are attending so that we can bring enough for everyone.  

If you have questions, please contact Carol Koenig at carolkoenig.ck@gmail.com. 

*A small community action grant through Thrivent is helping to supply food and supplies for this event.*
