Our Crafting Workshop is on August 8th, from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm. Please bring all the materials and supplies needed for your project, and your lunch! Some materials and kits are available at our Workshop. We will have some surprise samples to share with you for our upcoming Crafting Workshops this Fall!
We are making pillowcases this month for the women at Wheeler Mission. Check sales for fun cottons in both prints and solids, as some of the women were requesting solids. Wheeler has requested “tasteful, non-holiday” cotton fabrics. Please have your fabric cut out and ready to sew. There will be some kits available also.
What you will need to bring:
* for the body, cut one piece 26.5″ x 41″ (7/8 yard)
* for the band, cut one piece 10″ x 41″ (3/8 yard)
*** 1 & 1/4 yards of 2 cotton fabrics will make 2 pillowcases
Even if you don’t sew, there will be something for you to do! Come join us and have a fun fellowship time as well!
Another twist on hats and scarves!
The continuing theme is hats and scarves for this winter. Currently, we are focusing on making sets for children ages 9-11. Search the Internet for a wide variety of free patterns. Yarn company web-sites like www.lionbrand.com or www.readheart.com are good options. Many great patterns are in print and available at your local yarn shop. Or, you may already have a pattern you always wanted to try.
Reminder: acrylic yarn is recommended because most people are not allergic to it and the yarn is machine wash and dry.
Bring the pattern and materials you need. Yarn is also available at the workshop. We can work on these together!
Looking ahead to Fall:
Are you making Hats & Scarves? We hope you are! We will need more Hats & Scarves when the cold Fall and Winter months get here! Last year, we donated them to several different schools and organizations, and would like to continue this coming Fall/Winter. Focus on school age children, especially elementary school ages. We will need a small number for adults, teens, and toddlers, but not as many. Please choose whether you knit, crochet, or sew them, and use lots of fun colors and patterns. Check out the Patterns page for ideas, or come up with your own.
