Coalition launches craft recycling campaign

Written by 

Clean Slate Coalition has launched a fundraising campaign called “Sew Crafty” that will create a funding stream to help women leaving jail or prison by recycling and selling sewing and craft items that can be repurposed by local crafters.

Clean Slate operates a local transitional housing program for women in transition. Located in Sylva, the program serves up to eight women at a time.

An open house will be held from 2-4 p.m. Oct. 28.

Clean Slate urges local artisans to clean out fabric remnants and other supplies taking up space in homes and studios. Donations can be delivered to the Cross Stitch Emporium, located at 2 Dills Street in downtown Dillsboro. The campaign is also seeking volunteers to gather materials, build shelves, organization work, marketing, etc. The cause is also looking for two women to lead the project.

828.586.2726.
