Every other Monday evening from 6:00-8:00 p.m. fresh art has a sewing group that hand sews sock monkeys. The monkeys are sold via fresh art's website as well as select craft fairs to benefit the organizations fine arts programming for New York City artists with special needs.
Knowledge of hand sewing is necessary and participants must be a minimum of 21 years of age. We provide all of the sewing materials. It takes about four-six hours to sew a sock monkey so we ask that you would come to at least two to three sessions in order to finish a monkey. If you wish to continue with the group, that would be great. We have volunteers who have been with us for many years.
Please look at the website for fresh art's history of what we do: www.freshartnyc.org
Volunteers also help with staffing at the two-three craft fairs fresh art participates in per year for selling the sock monkeys and at the organizations yearly benefit.
For further information about the group and upcoming sewing dates, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator : Heber Sanchez: firstname.lastname@example.org
