Sew and Sews

Next Meeting: Monday, July 28, 2014 at 10:00am

pinky_puppetsThe Pinkie Puppet now known as the Sew and Sews program makes puppets for children receiving care at UVA Hospital. Our puppet makers, with the support of the UVA Women’s Auxiliary, have been making these puppets since 1960 and this is one of the Center’s original programs and partnerships.

Pinkie volunteers have consistently produced between 250 and 300 puppets per year. They gather at the Senior Center every Monday morning to cut, sew, and stuff. Once completed, the puppets are packed in clear plastic bags tied with ribbon and delivered to the hospital to be given to children waiting to be admitted.

Newcomers are welcome. Bonus: The group enjoys good conversation and, after meetings, often go out to lunch together.

Open to all.
