Sock Monkey Sewing Circle

Volunteers are needed to sew sock monkeys. We sell the sock monkeys online and at local craft fairs to benefit fresh art’s programs. You do not need to know how to make them, but you must be able to sew by hand. We’ll teach you the rest. We meet every other Monday evening from 6-8 pm in the Community Room at St. Margaret’s House (a senior residence two blocks from the South Street Seaport). The address is 49 Fulton Street at Pearl Street. Please email if you are interested in joining us.

Wish Lish

We can always use NEW or GENTLY USED art materials such as:

  • watercolor paints
  • watercolor pencils and crayons
  • brushes
  • paper
  • canvas boards
