July Work Days

Happy Independence Day! I’m grateful that I have the freedom to sew and the time to be of service to others.
This month we’re meeting on July 7 & 21, from 10-3, with brown bag lunch 11:30 – 12:30.
As always we meet at ARTS After School at 3510 Weems Rd.
We have fabric donations coming in, so we’ll do some sorting in the morning. We received a large box of samples from a sewing factory (Himatsingka America) that makes bedding sets. They sent large color-coordinated pieces. We have a serger and on Saturday I’d personally like to make some summer-weight coverlets out of this fabric. The samples are big pieces and I’m going to serge them into panels for light-weight twin size blankets. Does anyone have a serger they could bring and the desire to help me with this project? There’s plenty of fabric to go around. Many of our volunteers like to come up with their own idea for charity blankets and quilts to sew. They come and work with the group but do their own thing. Join us if you feel you’d benefit from working in a group setting. We’re blessed to have a nice group of women who are fun to be with and are supportive of one-another. We also welcome solitary stitchers who like to stop by and select fabric or a kit to take home with which to make a charity blanket.
Hope to see you Saturday.
Thanks for all you do,
