The Thing We Do
We make beautiful handmade items, one thing at a time and donate them to various charities and organizations. We also sell everything we make, and use the funds to keep home sewists earning while they make heartfelt items for those in need.

What people are saying
Wellspring Family Resource Centre
On behalf of Wellspring Family Resource & Crisis Centre I wish to express a sincere thank you to the team at “Sew Here’s the Thing”.
The donation of high quality, hand sewn masks will be extremely helpful to staff and clients alike as we work together during Covid-19.
The masks are bright and colorful making them more fun to wear. We are grateful to be recipients of your generosity.
Thanks also to Joanna MacDonald of Piper & Skye for funding the project.
Covenant House, Toronto
Last week, @PiperAndSkye & @sewheresthething sent us a shipment of masks, made by them. These are very essential for our staff who are working day and night to provide the best services for our young people. Thank you for thinking of us!
E4C Women's Shelter, Edmonton
I have attached a photo of our staff from our Safe Spaces program, which is a youth shelter for LGBTQ2S+ folks. Our womxn at WEAC also received masks today, as they have to leave the shelter for bed bug fumigation (a monthly practice for increased safety and sanitation at this time). They were thrilled with the "funky" (their words, not mine!) designs, and it definitely helped ease some anxiety about travelling into the community at the Expo centre for today.
Thank you for the update on the quilts, it is a high demand item that we rarely get donated."
