  • 1 person is interested

The Denver 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!

The Denver BeepBall Group is open to anyone who enjoys doing basic sewing either at home or as a part of a cooperative group. Volunteers need to provide their own sewing machine; we will provide all the materials and training. The goal of the program is not only getting Beepball bases assembled, but also volunteer training, team-work, engagement, and satisfaction.

Qualifications:

  • Good vision
  • Ability to perform fine motor tasks
  • Good eye-hand coordination

Skills

  • Basic Sewing
  • Stuffing
  • Cutting fabric
