DES MOINES (KWWL)-- The Iowa State Fair is looking for people who know how to sew and quilt for the second year of Sew-In.

The event is from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sewers provide warm blankets for local needy children.  If people do not know how to sew there will be sewing assistants available to help.

Last year's quilts were donated to the University of Iowa Children's Hospitals and the Angel Tree Camps.  Volunteers last year made 173 quilts and this years goal is to complete 200. 

The fair will be from August 12-22 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines.
