We’ll be meeting at ARTS After School on Saturday, August 20 from 9 – 3 with lunch from 11:30 – 12:30.
3510 Weems Rd. — on Weems at Eliza. Eliza runs beside Honey Baked Ham on Capitol Circle NE.
For lunch, please bring a brown bag.
Although we’re still getting settled into our new home, we love the space. It’s so convenient that our fabric is right there in our room. Thanks to our donors, our cabinets are filled with an abundance of colorful and fun fabrics to work with. We thank ARTS for giving us this wonderful home.
Right now we’re working on several projects, which of course is the norm for us. We’ve had many unfinished quilts donated to us and that’s what we’ll be working on. We want to get those quilts finished and into the hands of children who are in need.
All are welcome to come and work in a group setting, take a project home to work on, or just stop by for a visit and see the new space. We’ve also been known to give fabric away to other charity sewing groups. If your group is in need of fabric, we welcome you. We love to share our abundance.
Last week I delivered 21 beautifully finished quilts and one tiny receiving blanket to HOPE Community here in Tallahassee. I’m very pleased that so many stitchers have heard our plea and donated long twin quilts suitable for older boys and girls. Marie at HOPE reported to me that they continue to harbor families with older kids. If you’re wondering what our current needs are, it remains quilts and blankets suitable for older teens. Kids up to 21 years of age are eligible to receive a Sew for Hope Kids blanket. Last week I also delivered two laundry basket bassinets. They are so cute. At this time I’m unable to attach the photo, so we’ll post it to the website.
We need 100% cotton fabric yardage (2 – 6 yard pcs) in solid colors. We did receive the black I requested, and also navy and white. Most fabric that’s donated is patterned, so we need primary and brightly colored solids that will play nice with all those different patterns.
All our play days are on Saturdays from 9 – 3 at ARTS After School. The rest of our dates in 2016 are:
9/3, 9/17, 10/1, 10/15, 11/5, 11/19 & 12/3.
Thanks for all you do,
