January Work Days and Beyond!

Happy New Year Dear Friends,

We hope your holidays were merry and bright.

Sew for Hope will meet at St Stephen Lutheran Church, 2198 N. Meridian Road, in January on the 4th and 18th. We always meet from 10 – 3 with brown bag lunch from 11:30 – 12:30. We’re looking forward to getting back to work making blankets for kids in need. We appreciate the hard work that our volunteers have done… and all on behalf of kids they’ll probably never meet. Our volunteers are simply the best.

We thank St Stephen for the gift of work and storage space and hope that more members can find time to join us.

December Work Day

Merry Christmas Dear Friends,

We’re having our last meeting of the year Saturday 12/7.

We’ll be at our new wonderful and spacious location. That’s at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, 2198 N. Meridian. As usual we’ll meet from 10 – 3 with brown bag lunch from 11:30 to 12:30.

Whether you’ve been with us for years or you’re stopping by for the first time, all are welcome. We need many helping hands to achieve our goals. We always have a variety of projects that need to be worked on; some are easy while others are challenging. We continue to be the grateful recipients of other stitcher’s unfinished quilts and quilt blocks. That’s why we always have so many projects that need to be finished.

All the blankets we make are donated to children who are homeless, impoverished, or in crisis.

Please see our website for more information.

November and December Work Days

Dear Friends,

Sew for Hope successfully moved to St. Stephen Lutheran Church! We are grateful for their generosity and faith in our mission. We have been blessed yet again.

Our first work day at St. Stephen was small but productive. We worked on some big quilt blocks that we may have time to assemble into a quilt top at our next meeting.

Our play days and times will remain the same, although we are winding down the year. We’ll only meet twice more this year, once on Saturday, November 2nd and then on Saturday, December 7th. In January, we will return to meeting twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays.

We hope to see you from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, located at 2198 N Meridian Rd. We’ll have brown bag lunch from 11:30 to 12:30. Will be planning, cutting, sewing and pressing — making fun quilt blocks and quilts that appeal to kids of all ages.

Visitors are welcome to stop by for any length of time. We always need help setting up around 10:00 and clean up begins at 2:30.

Thanks for all you do,

The Sew for Hope Sisters

 

GOOD NEWS!

We have a new home!  St. Stephens Lutheran Church at 2198 N. Meridian Road has generously taken us in! We have both a big room to work in and a large storage area for our “stuff.” Now we just have to move all that stuff to the new location. All your good wishes once again have kept Sew for Hope alive!
 
Because of the move, we will not meet to play with fabric until Saturday, October 19th from 10 am to 3 pm with an 11:30 brown bag lunch. We will meet in the community room located at the end of the “U” formed by the three church buildings. We will have signs up.
 
Also, please remember that we will only meet ONCE EACH in November (November 2nd) and December (December 7th) because of the holidays.
