The Sewanee Craft House kicked off the new semester with a day of scarf creation for the Room in the Inn charity organization in Nashville, a group comprised of over 180 middle Tennessee congregations to aid the homeless. As part of the Craft House’s ongoing outreach projects, some 120 scarves were made over the course of the day. Club members measured, cut, and tied their way toward applying their skills and ingenuity to help the less fortunate. The day proved to be a success for all involved. Speaking on the event, Colton Treadwell (C’16) said, “Making scarves with the Craft Club was an easy and fun way to give back. Events like this bring people together in a very positive way.”
Several other activities were held throughout the day to make the day not only productive, but also sociable and fun. These included a sing-along showing of Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge, a competitive session of Super Smash Brothers Melee, a chaotic run-through of the first two chapters of cooperative game Magicka and a late-night Scrabble scrimmage. The event culminated in a group dinner of delicious chili to all attendees.
The Sewanee Craft Club/House is an organization dedicated to providing safe and constructive activities for the Sewanee community. Most involve creation and creativity, and outreach through these activities is an especially important aspect of the club’s mission.
