This coming November, That Sewing Place will celebrate it’s 10th year of Business. Hard to believe it’s been that long, but we are so grateful to our loyal Customers, Family and Friends who have supported us through the years.
To honour the support you have given us, we wanted to sponsor 10 local Charities (one for every month leading up to November), as our way of thanking the community.
In January, our chosen charity was Kate and Me Cat Rescue. They have been placing abandoned, orphaned, stray and surrendered cats into their fur-ever homes since 2005. They will work with families to ensure that the cat they adopt will be the perfect one for them (and that they are the perfect family for the cat). They operate out of the Newmarket PetSmart at Yonge St and the Green Lane) during store hours, and have a representative on hand during the weekends and at adoption events. You can find them online on their facebook page, or by calling (905) 953-8355.
After hosting a ScanNCut Heat Transfer event at the store on February 4th (due to scheduling, we were unable to do it in January), our wonderful volunteers made bandanas and blankets that will be used and worn by the kittens and cats that are at adoption events.
The next day, Jaret was happy to take them to the home of the rescue where their own pet cat, Mildred, gave him her Seal of Approval by jumping in the box and inspecting the goodies!
As a Volunteer run Organization, Kate and Me Cat Rescue relies on the donations and assistance of others. Please contact them if you’d like to foster, donate, or adopt your next furry family member.
