Furry Buddy Rescue

Big or small, we love them all. Every furry baby deserves a family. Pet adoption is so rewarding for both the pet and you. Shelters/Rescues have their hands full trying to find forever homes. We want to help. We are your local drop off station for anything you would like to donate to the cause. We have decided to sew "comfy bankies" for the ones in the shelter or temporary adoptive home that these BFF's can then take with them when they find their forever home! That way they will have something familiar to them when they relocate to their new pack. We are also accepting donations of collars, leashes, and doggie toys (no food at this time) and of course cash. We have a new machine from Bernina with dog prints called "Best Friend" We will donate $100 from the sale of each "Best Friend Bernina 350LE" to local animal support places like rescues, foster homes and shelters. Won't you participate? If you like to sew perhaps you would want to make a "comfy bankie" out of flannel fabric.  You can pick up the pattern for the bankie @ The Sewing Store.  We also have a few classes scheduled to show you how to make one.  These classes are FREE, but please call us to let us know if you are interested.  815-741-9553. If you would like to donate flannel fabric, we would love to have that too.

How to manage the slideshow above:

The slideshow above moves a bit fast or slow for some.  To stop and see details simply mouse over the slide without clicking, this will stop the slides from advancing giving you time to see more detail if you would like.  For some, the slides cannot move fast enough.  We try to keep current things that maybe of interest to everyone in the slideshow, it is just a tiny bit of what is going on at
The Sewing Store.  Please enjoy, or better yet, stop in!
