December/January Play Dates and News

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! May your world be blessed with happiness and good fortune.
We’ll only have one more meeting in December and just in case I get busy with holiday hubbub, here’s the information for our January days as well.
Saturdays
December 3, January 7 and 21
9 – 3 with lunch from 11:30 – 12:30
ARTS After School
3510 Weems Rd
We always meet the first and third Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
During our December meeting we’ll work on finishing blankets. Go figure! No really, at our last meeting we were given many unfinished quilt tops with which to work. What fun! But if you have a charity quilt started and you want to bring it and work with the group, that would be great too. I think we may also be finishing up some weighted therapy blankets. Welcome to Austyn and Shameka, our new volunteers who are working almost exclusively on those.
At both our January meetings we’ll work on the 45 Pre-K nap-time coverlets that we need for the PAEC Summer Day Care Program. Thanks to the generous fabric donations from Donna Dye and Loretta Veenstra, we have plenty of flannel for those coverlet backings now. The instructions are on our website if you’d like to make a blanket (or several) at home.
Marie at Hope Community informed us that they really need gently used blankets for adults right now. So this would be a great time to bring in any unneeded blankets that are taking up valuable space in your linen closet. Blankets can also be dropped off, during business hours, at HOPE Community at 2729 W Pensacola St.
Judy and Cynthia will be at Temple Israel for the Quilter’s Unlimited Guild meeting on Thursday, December 8. Sew for Hope Kids donations can be delivered from 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. or between 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Thanks for all you do.
