Sew What? Limestone Volleyball Pair Great With Fabric

Brooke Hammer, Brittany Robinson Sew

BARTONVILLE, Ill. - They are known for the uniforms they wear. And for the ones they repair.

"They just come up to us and say, 'Hey, I have a hole in my jersey in the arm pit.
Can you sew it for us? One time our coach had a lanyard that broke," Limestone senior Brooke Hammer said.

And so it begin for Brooke and Brittany. Two standouts on the volleyball floor, two standouts with needles and fabric, and two Limestone students who've repaired holes and tears for uniforms, practice jerseys even sports equipment.

"You're not involved in one sport," said senior Britany Robinson. "You're involved with athletes in the other sports as well. You feel like a complete part of the school."

They've found a way to be teammates with the football, basketball and softball teams without playing for them.

"It's really nice to help out other teams," said Hammer. "We're all united at Limestone. Help each
other out."

Hammer and Robinson say they were introduced to sewing through Limestone's Family Consumer Science class as freshmen. They love to play volleyball but they consider sewing a nice release from their sports schedules.

The pair has created and sold clothing through a fashion merchandising class. And both asked for
sewing machines for Christmas last year.

"That was the only thing I asked my parent for Christmas," Robinson recalled. "They made me open it last. It was the only thing I could look at all day."

Now she says it's a gift that keeps on giving.
