Volunteers are truly the backbone of our ministry, and recently the women of Church in the Canyon in Calabasas, California held a "Sew In" for Wheels for the World. Young and old alike brought their sewing machines to stitch 'pocket bags' for wheelchairs and walkers – even 10-year-old Brontë brought her mini 2-speed sewing machine. Our Wheels teams take these beautiful (and very practical) pocket bags on outreach trips for distribution to disabled children and adults. Marilyn Rosenberg, organizer of the "Sew In" said, "We ladies had such a grand time, we can't wait to do it again." Our hats off to the girls of Church in the Canyon for providing such personal gifts with every wheelchair and walker!

My 7 year old daughter and I would like to make some bags like you all did. I printed off the directions but they do not make any sense. Please tell me if the top of the bag is the narrow or long side. Any other hints would be appreciated. Thanks for the encouragement to help out in this way.

This is a wonderful idea. I would love to do this with my church ladies maybe in the spring.

Cool! I alter "ready made" clothing & make adaptive clothing/special needs items for people with disabilities. There are many who do not have access to these kinds of services (at least in my area). Sewing has almost become a lost art with each passing generation. I'm so glad to see there are others out there doing these items! Great job! May God bless your work for others! <3 Annette
