Sewing up proceeds for Habitat
Findlay’s Vacuum and Sewing World has chosen Habitat for Humanity Kamloops as its charity — and is using its summer contest to raise money for the organization.
The contest involved people designing original tote bags in two categories — adults and children.
Sixteen people took part and their works are on display at the store at 251 Tranquille Rd.
The public gets to vote on which one is the best; the adult winner will receive a new sewing machine and the children’s winner will receive a sewing kit.
Voting ends on Oct. 6 at 2 p.m.
A silent auction for the totes will also be held with all the money going to Habitat.
The auction ends on Nov. 15.
