Bee for a Cause

In cooperation with The Syria Refugee Mission of the North Shore the next Bee in the Barn at Todd Farm will be be a collection site for donated handcraft supplies to be contributed to NuDay Syria’s frequent shipments of humanitarian aid to two refugee camps in Syria.  These are communities of primarily women and children who have very little opportunity to build a better life.  Textile and handcraft tools and materials will provide these women the ability to develop a vocation and a means of support for themselves and their families, as well as the much needed supplies to enrich the lives of a community teetering on the edge of sustainability.  Sewing Bees have a long tradition as community gatherings for a common goal.  In that spirit, at the next bee we will be accepting donations of any handcrafting material or supply you would like to contribute.

When:  March 19th, 1-4 pm.

Where:  The Barn at Todd Farm, 275 Main Street, Rowley, MA

What to Bring:  A handwork project of your choice and a friend!  This is a free community gathering open to all with a love of handcraft and community.

What to Donate:  Any handcrafting material or tool, including fabrics, sewing supplies and notions, yarn, knitting needles, sewing machines; to name a few!

NuDay Syria is a 501c-3 non-profit dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to displaced Syrians. They are particularly focused on creating safe environments and opportunities for single and widowed women and mothers. For more information, visit NuDaySyria.net .
