Placemats for Good

Meals on Wheels serves over 170 people in the Tanana Valley. Our goal at Northern Threads is to create a beautiful placemat for every single person, and perhaps raise a little money too!

Today, the average life expectancy is at a record high of 79 years. As we get older, even the most independent among us may experience physical declines or financial hardship that strips away our independence.
Meals on Wheels is designed specifically to meet the nutritional and social needs of seniors.

How Placemats for Good works:
You choose whether you would like to participate in a group setting or by sewing at home and bringing your donation into the store.

There will be two days of sewing at Northern Threads, April 18 and 19. We'll have some light refreshments, and you are welcome to bring food to share.  You can join us for both days, one day, or one hour!

We will have free patterns and experienced placemat makers on hand to assist you. Beginners are welcome!

Bring your own supplies or buy a kit. Our kits will be five dollars for two placemats. All proceeds will go to Meals on Wheels.

There is no specific pattern, size, or shape for the placemats. (Unless you use on of our kits.) Be creative!


  • Five super fun sewing related prizes
  • One grand prize - a $100 Northern Threads gift card!
You will earn one chance to win for each placemat you contribute.

Please turn in your completed placemats by Wednesday, April 24. We will draw for prizes on Thursday, April 25.

We are hoping this is lots of fun and very successful! We hope to make it an annual event.
