June Play Dates and News

Hi there,
We hope to see you during the month of June. We’ll be at ARTS After School on Saturdays, June 2 & 16. We always meet from 10 – 3 with lunch from 11:30 – 12:30.

We have an over-abundance of (small yet lovely) fabric scraps, so in June we’ll use those to make scrappy blocks. We usually spend our time finishing the work of other quilters. From that process we end up with left-over fabric – just like every other quilter. They’re much to precious to throw away, and it’s such fun to make scrappy quilts — it’s kind of messy though. We’ll need folks to sew and others to press. It would be a blessing if we also had a volunteer or two just to carry fabric and quilt blocks back and forth between stitchers and pressers. This would be a good month for beginners to jump in.
Since our inception in 2008, Sew for Hope has donated 1,804 handmade quilts and blankets just to the HOPE Community Homeless Shelter in Tallahassee. We’ve also given quilts and blankets to other groups and organizations. One such agency is PAEC in Quincy. Every year, since 2013, we’ve made and donated Pre-K naptime coverlets and crib blankets to their Migrant Farm Worker Summer Daycare Program. To date we’ve gifted them 340 blankets.
On Saturday, if you’re dropping off donations to us at ARTS, please try to do so before 1:00 so we’ll have time to sort before the end of the day. We can always use flannel, cotton novelty quilting fabric, and cotton solids and blenders.
Thanks for all you do,
Cynthia
