Stitching Afghans for Veterans – Wed, Nov 11th – Veterans Day

Volunteer to help veterans on Veterans day with internationally recognized fiber artist, art quilter, teacher and lecturer Denise Labadie!

Denise makes mittens from felted sweaters and lines them with cashmere or merino wool. They are the “warmest things to put on your hand” says her son and husband. She’s made so many felted mittens that she has become inundated with felted wool. Due to the excess, she came up with the idea for this project to help veterans.

In this volunteer “sew-in” session you will cut up sweaters and stitch squares and rectangles together to make afghans. When completed the afghans will be donated to veterans and the staff of the Veterans Hospital is “over the moon” with the idea.

Volunteer To Cut and Sew Afghans for Veterans

Denise is looking for volunteers to help cut and sew the afghans. The work is very easy and can be done by almost anyone. Each of the afghans will be about 40 x 40 inches when completed. You can help during this one session and you are welcome to continue to work on afghans at home while there is still a stock of sweaters available.

This volunteer “sew-in” day is on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11, 2015, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. It will be held at the Boulder Art Association – Art Center behind the Meadows Shopping Center, in Boulder just east of the Meadows Branch of the Boulder Public Library.

Please contact Denise Labadie with any questions at or 720-352-0973.

Optional RSVP for this event on our meetup page.
