St. Joseph County, Ind. Volunteers have about three more hours to go in a 12-hour sewing marathon. Their work will benefit those who are physically and mentally challenged in Michiana.
They group met at the St. Joseph County Fairgrounds at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning putting their fingers to work.
They're making clothing and toys for autistic children as well as wheel chair tote bags and other items.
The extension homemakers of St. Joseph County organized the event, and items will go to non-profit Busy Hands of Michiana.
“Most of the items we're dealing with are recyclable items, so you're able to take something that someone might have wanted to discard and make something worthwhile out of it,” says Diana Kuhn Extension Homemakers, St. Joseph County President.
Volunteers can come or go as they please until 9 p.m. Tuesday night, so there's still time to lend a hand, or stop by the St. Joseph County Fairgrounds to donate some fabric.
