Our Saturday meeting days in April are the 1st and 15th, from 10 – 4, with lunch from 11:30 – 12:30.
ARTS After School
3510 Weems Road
We’ll continue working on finishing quilts where just the tops have been donated. Our core group that usually does this already has their hands full of unfinished quilts. We’re in need of ladies who haven’t quilted for us in a while, or new quilters who need practice with their quilting. Please know that perfection is not necessary. Our mission is to provide warmth to children in a fun and colorful way. The young recipients will neither notice nor criticize your sewing skills. What they will notice is that, at one of the lowest points in their life, they received a gift that they could hold to their heart, and hide from the world under.
We’re still making payments to ARTS for the wonderful cabinets they graciously installed in our room. We also need shelving in our closet, so we are accepting monetary donations.
Speaking of fund raising — do you have too much stuff laying around your house that’s just in the way? Do you simply hate to have yard sales? Well, there’s this really cool consignment shop called Anita’s Funky Emporium. Sew for Hope has a contract with Anita. Through her shop, we sell items that have been donated to us that we can’t use. It’s a way for us to make a bit of money. However, right now we need more than just a bit of money. So we’re asking you to please donate some of your cool and funky collectibles in the name of Sew for Hope.

That’s all for now except for thanks for your time, and thanks for all you do,
