We are pleased to help with other charitable projects, too. We have donated sewing machines and fabric to causes which need a boost, both in the New Mexico, parts of the Southwest and our neighbors who need a hand.
Hip Stitch is a regular participant participate in the annual Albuquerque "Four-legged Race" which helps pets.
As a community involved, Albuquerque sewing center we contributed a hand-cranked sewing machine, converted from electric by our sewing machine repair technician to Albuquerque's Explora museum. Our sewing machine repair technician also created a "skeleton" machine which displays all the inner workings of a sewing machine so youngsters can gain a better understanding of how sewing machines work. We helped to outfit the Explora "maker's lab" with sewing machines, too.
We're happy to support the Albuquerque Chapter of the American Sewing Guild in their "First Day of School" project, which puts a new hand-sewn outfit on deserving kindergartners for their first day of school.
