DON‟T FORGET ABOUT SAVING „ORPHAN THREADS’
We are collecting “orphan threads” as an ongoing project. This includes kit threads, floss with no numbers and threads we are not going to use again and donate them to Threads of Blessings to promote needlework in Uganda. These stitchers are making beautiful pieces out of grass and could use thread. They don‟t need to be full skeins, just a few feet. I will bring a tote bag to collect these threads to the General meetings or if you have them at a stitch in, I will take them.
OUTREACH FOR MEALS ON WHEELS
We are also collecting toiletry items for Meals on Wheels. Anytime you go traveling, please pick up the shampoos, hand soaps, shower caps, etc. from the hotels. I will have a tote bag for these items at the General Meetings or give them to me at stitch ins.
We will make drawstring bags for them at the November meetings. Christian Senior Services Meals on Wheels recommends these items:
Kleenex/Tissue packets, hand lotions, single packaged combs/brushes, toothpaste, mouthwashes, single packaged toothbrushes, shampoos, hand soaps/hand sanitizers, shower caps, soft pair of socks and large puzzle books.
