Crafters Needed - Learn to make beeping bases

Beepballs

Our BeepBall Group is looking for volunteers to cut out and sew the canvas bases for teams of blind beepball players to participate in a unique and exhilarating sport. Teams from across America compete in local, regional, and national contests culminating in the World Series. But, we have to keep them supplied with specially modified beeping softballs and bases. We need your help!

Our group is open to anyone who enjoys doing basic sewing either at home or as a part of a cooperative group. Volunteers do not need to provide their sewing machine; we provide all the equipment, materials, and training. The program's goal is not only to get Beepball bases assembled but also to support blind athletes to reach their goals!
