Santas Anonymous Sewathon

"The mission of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous is simple: to see every child receive a new toy at Christmas. Since Jerry Forbes founded the charity in 1955, that mission has stayed the same. Relying on thousands of volunteers and donors, 630 CHED Santas Anonymous now collects, sorts, packages, and delivers toys to over 25,000 children every year."

In 2019 we selected Santas Anonymous as our new charity to partner with. Fabricana is excited to announce our first Charity Teddy Bear Sew-A-Thon. Coquitlam Fabricana will host events on November 18th (6pm-9pm) and November 25th (6pm-9pm). All fabric & materials will be provided. Please bring your sewing machine if you can. 

As Richmond will close soon for renovations this event will be in Coquitlam only this year.

Come enjoy snacks, beverages and good company; and help give the gift of a Teddy Bear this Christmas to an underprivileged child. Completed bears will be donated to Santas Anonymous. If you’d like to come and help (cut or sew) please contact our Coquitlam store and sign up! Call us at (604) 524-5454. 

Please note space is limited. If the scheduled nights book up we may add more dates.

Starting with our Coquitlam store in the first year with plans to expand the event to both stores in 2020.
