Every first Tuesday of the month we have a "Cutting Party" starting at 6:30 p.m. at St. Peter's United Methodist Church in Asbury Hall located on Kingsland Blvd. across from Katy Taylor High School. Using patterns, we cut the donated fabric into adult sizes XS to XXL and larger upon request.
Each Smock consists of 100% cotton fabric (non-metallic and non-see thru) with two front pockets. One Smock costs approximately $10 to make after purchasing the needed materials, including three yards of fabric.
Volunteers are needed to cut Smocks from raw fabric using a pattern, then package into “kits.” Kits consist of the needed materials to assemble a Smock. Sewers then pick up kits at designated “Drop-off Areas” to complete the assembly of a Smock by sewing the materials. Finalized Smocks are distributed to women in cancer treatment at local area Houston hospitals.
Bring fabric, friends and a pair of shears, we'd love to see you there!
