Spring 2024
In honor of my birthday (April 30), we are having a gift card drive for Kaylee's Closet. The gift card drive event starts now and runs through the end of May, or until we run out of fabric we have set aside for this event.

How does it work?
Buy a $20 gift card from Walmart, Food Lion, or Dollar General and drop it by the shop ($20 cash works too). When you drop off the gift card or cash (no credit cards) you get to choose 4 yds of fabric that we have precut for this purpose. We have fabric already cut into 1, 2, 3, & 4 yard cuts. Choose one 4-yard piece, choose a 3yd & a 1yd piece (3+1=4), choose two 2yd pieces (2+2=4), or choose four 1yd pieces (1+1+1+1=4). The choice is yours!

At the end of May, all gift cards and money raised will go to Kaylee's Closet to support foster families in Western NC. You can read more about Kaylee's Closet here. https://kayleesclosetfranklin.com/

Why is the mission of Kaylee's Closest near and dear to my heart?
My sister and brother-in-law were foster parents for 31 children spanning 11 years, ages ranging from newborn to teenage moms, and then eventually adopted 4 of the kids they fostered. I met many of the children my sister and husband fostered and they were smart, funny, creative, caring, sweet and everything else children are but they each needed a supportive family to help them be their best. Some needed help just for a little while and then were reunited with their parents, others were transitory and placed with family members, and still others needed a more permanent solution. My nieces and nephews are some of the smartest and most engaging children I ever met, but they needed people like my sister and brother-in-law to help bring out the best in them. The foster system isn't perfect, but it is extremely important to support not only the children, but also those who offer their homes, hands, and hearts to these children.

We all win
- You get fabric!
- Kaylee's Closest is able to support more foster families in Western NC
- We clear out room in the shop for new fabric

PLEASE HELP us make this a successful event for Kaylee's Closet. Together we can make a difference!

Fall/Winter 2022/2023
Looking for a quick new project and love to help others at the same time? We are sponsoring a mitten drive for school-age children and would love your help with this fun and super quick project! We are working with Kaylee's Closest in Franklin to make and distribute mittens to the school-age kids in the surrounding area during the winter months.


Kaylee's Closest serves foster families in Macon and surrounding counties. In addition to providing mittens to foster families, the mittens are placed on buses and are available for all kids to take as needed.

How to help?
  • We have free kits in the shop with a pattern, template, and fleece to make 1 pair of mittens. Grab a kit, take it home, make the mittens, and then return the finished mittens to the shop.
  • Download this free pattern and use your own fleece (see other fabric suggestions below) to make one or more pair of mittens. Make the medium or large sizes only. The small is too small.
  • If you don't have time to sew, bring us your clean, smoke-free, fleece and we will find volunteers to sew the mittens.
  • Hats and muffs also accepted.
  • Acceptable fabrics: fleece, wool, upcycled wool blankets or wool sweaters, sherpa, and leather.
Mittens accepted anytime, but we would love to get our first delivery to Kaylee's closest by mid- to late- October so they can get the mittens ready for distribution before our first frost date not yet in the forecast but probably before the end of the month.

Please let us know if you have any questions, and thanks so much for your help!
