Muscles volunteers ‘have a blast’ assisting in unique fabric sale

Introducing Judy Barlup, octogenarian and Sewing Queen from Bellevue, WA, USA. After thirty years of teaching sewing and tailoring internationally, Judy decided to sell off her unique collection of quilts, sewing fabric, kimono’s, books, equipment and more and invited Muscles for Charity volunteers to assist during a two day ‘Gone out of Business’ sale that involved months of planning and preparation.

She and none of the team were disappointed.
