Join us Thursday, February 20, at 6:00 PM, for a sewing bee with the MoonCatcher Project, a grassroots volunteer organization based in Schenectady, New York, that creates menstrual pads for girls in developing countries. Each month, the group organizes a MoonCatcher Sewing Bee (or MoonBee), an event open to all ages and skill levels to come together and create the pads.

Even if you can’t sew, you can participate in and enjoy a MoonBee. There are useful jobs for everyone, skilled or unskilled. All materials and equipment are provided. However, if you have a sewing machine that you would like to bring, more are always helpful. We also welcome boxes of tampons or sanitary pads for donation.

This event is co-sponsored by the Skidmore student groups Random Acts of Crafts and Benef-Action, and runs from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM; refreshments will be provided. The MoonCatcher Sewing Bee is free and open to the public.
