April Meeting Schedule

Happy Springtime!
Our next two Saturday meetings are April 7 and 21, 2018
10 – 3
ARTS After School
3510 Weems Road
brown bag lunch 11:30 – 12:30
We always have a good time playing with fabric and deciding how to finish UFOs into quilts and make blankets that kids would love to have. Sometimes those design decisions are simple, such as choosing two large pieces of fabric that coordinate and sewing them together for a naptime coverlet. Sometimes the UFOs are complex, like when a stitcher completely goofed up her quilt blocks — and rather than figure out how to fix it, donated them to us. Then we figure out how to salvage it. So, if you know how to sew and love puzzles with more than one solution, please join us. If you’d like to be of service in a non-pressure setting and don’t know how to sew, we always need fabric pressers, runners, and people who are willing to help set up at 10 or clean up at 2:30.
 
Sew for Hope Kids is forming a new Pick up and Delivery Volunteer Pool. We already have a volunteer coordinator. We just need a handful of folks who, if available when called upon, will pick up outgoing donations from Sew for Hope during our Saturday play sessions. Volunteer will deliver those items, at their convenience, to other organizations such as The Sharing Tree. Outgoing donations are fabric and sewing or craft supplies that we can’t use. We’re also looking for folks to occasionally launder and fold fabric that will be returned back to Sew for Hope. If you’re willing and able to be a member of this pool, please reply. Of course, please forward this to anyone you think might like to be involved.
If you have donations for Sew for Hope Kids, please deliver before lunch so we have a chance to sort them before it’s time to clean up.
Thanks for all you do,
Cynthia
