Sew for Hope Kids 2017 meeting days list, time change, and note

Happy New Year. May the coming year bring happiness, good health, and prosperity to you and yours.
Sew for Hope Kids is about cheerfully being of service to those who are less fortunate than we are. We do that by gratefully receiving generous donations of fabric and sewing supplies. With those gifts, our loving volunteers create cozy blankets for children who are temporarily without a home and temporarily without the means to purchase a really cool blanket of their own. Someday they’ll grow up, be presidents, business owners, and advocates — but right now they could sure use a little help. Would you like to be a part of that?
Please note our meeting time has permanently changed to 10 – 4.
We always meet on the first and third Saturdays at ARTS After School.
3510 Weems Road, Tallahassee
Lunch break from 11:30 – 12:30
The 2017 dates for the year are as follows:
1/7 & 1/21,  2/4 & 2/18, 3/4 & 3/18, 4/1 & 4/15, 5/6 & 5/20, 6/3 & 6/17, 7/1 & 7/15, 8/5 & 8/19, 9/2 & 9/16, 10/7 & 10/21, 11/4 & 11/18, 12/2.
If it’s possible and you wouldn’t mind too much, please mark your calendar now. I’ve been feeling kinda poorly and it’s not always easy to get the reminder out a week before.
At our January meetings we’ll be making Pre-K nap-time coverlets for the PAEC Migrant Farm Worker Day Care Program. This group of kids is 3 and 4 years old. We need 45 blankets, which would be difficult to make during just two meetings. The instructions are on our website if you’d rather work at home. Please do not feel that you must buy fabric. If you’d like to participate, but our meeting times aren’t good for you, please stop by and pick up some fabric, or let us know and we’ll make arrangements to meet you at your convenience. If you’d like to use up some of your considerable fabric stash, please remember that the age group for these kids is 3 and 4 year olds. No fabric themes that are too babyish or too grown-up.
Sew for Hope Kids is also present each month at the Quilter’s Unlimited Guild meetings. They are always the second Thursday of the month at Temple Israel. 2215 Mahan Dr. Donations can be dropped off between 1:30 – 4, or 5:30 – 6:30.
Thank you for your interest in Sew for Hope Kids, and thanks for all you do and all you’ve done,
Cynthia
