Hello Beautiful People,

We are HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY to be resuming our Sew for Hope meetings on Saturday, May 1 at 10:00 a.m. We will be following CDC guidelines. We’re sorry, but only those who’ve been vaccinated are invited. We’re mostly older folk and some of us have preexisting conditions which make us more vulnerable. We’re also requesting that masks be worn. Social distancing will be practiced as much as possible. We will not be sitting at the same small table for lunch. Every one can either eat at their sewing station whenever they get hungry, or find a space they’re comfortable moving to.

Please note our shortened hours. From this day forth, we’ll be meeting from 10 am – 2 pm.

We meet at St. Stephen Lutheran Church 2198 North Meridian Road, Tallahassee, FL  32303, just south of John Knox . (Directions)

Activities – We’ve received fabric donations which need to be sorted and put away or given away. We have several quilt tops to be paired with backing fabric and measured for batting. We just received quilt tops from Lois that she needs help completing. We were given oodles of cut squares from Suzy. We can either make kits, or start sewing and making quilt tops. Plus, I think we already have a container of squares at the church. Lastly, if you have an unfinished charity quilt, you can bring that to work on. So you see, we have plenty to do.

We’ll have quilting books and magazines to give away.

At the present time, HOPE Community has enough quilts in their stock pile. Lately, all the quilts we’ve been making at home have been donated to Sleep in Heavenly Peace, aka The Bunk Bed Project. Those quilts and blankets can be dropped off at any of the three Living Harvest Thrift Stores. Make sure you tell them and label them for Sleep in Heavenly Peace or the Bunk Bed Project. The bunk bed throws should be approximately 40 x 60 inches.

Thanks for all you do,
Cynthia and her Sewing Sisters
