Sew-at-thon to assist vets


WILLMAR -- Hands of residents in veterans homes in the state will soon be freed up with the aid of wheelchair or walker bags, assembled and sewn together by volunteers at Saturday's fifth annual Fabric and Textile Warehouse Sew-a-thon.

Area volunteers at the event, slated from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday at the Willmar Community Center, will busy their own hands cutting, ironing and sewing together bags for veterans.
