Thursday – February 20 – Pay It Forward
Note: Due to winter weather conditions, the February 13 Sit & Stitch was postponed to February 20. We have scheduled a meeting room at the Central Library, 9875 West 87th Street from 9:00 am to 12:45 pm. Please bring cutting boards, very sharp rotary cutters, long rulers. We will be cutting kits and then we will be able to sew the next week, Thursday, February 27th. Please let me know if you are able to attend, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be making walker/wheelchair bags for the residents of Rose Estates to thank them for allowing us to use the Rose Estates community room for our Sit & Stitch meetings. If you have taught a workshop, attended a workshop, or would like to help make these bags — Please Come! New Members – this is a good time for you to join us to meet other members and participate in our Sit & Stitch meetings.
If you have a walker/wheelchair bag pattern you would like to use, please bring it. Heavier fabrics such as upholstery, duck fabric, or quilted fabrics can be used. If you would like to use cotton, perhaps interfacing would make it heavier for this use. Have extra interfacing — Bring it!
We have had donations of fabric, so if you don’t have any fabrics you would like to use just come and we will put you to work.
