Project Hugs Charity Sew-in

We are pleased to partner with TrendTex Fabrics, a Canadian supplier of premium quilting cottons, to host “Project Hugs”, a charity sewing event to create children’s quilts that will be donated locally. TrendTex has set a goal of 1000 children’s quilts to be completed nationally in the month of May. The quilts finish at 40" x 40".

The Cobourg Public Library has generously provided the space for the event; our quilts will be donated to The Cobourg Public Library to be used during children’s and baby programming.

If you cannot attend the event, order a kit ($40) and construct the quilt on your own with the included pattern. Then, return the finished quilt to Embellish so that it can be donated locally.

Embellish will offer a 20% discount on notions purchased for the “Project Hugs” Event; please remind us at the cash!

Saturday May 27, 10:00 – 4:00

Location: Cobourg Public Library, 55 King Street West, Cobourg

The cut-off date for this event will be Friday May 12 to ensure enough kits can be obtained ahead of time.

Please see our Class Guidelines and Policies before registering.
