OUTREACH FOR THE NOVEMBER 27, 2018 MEETINGS

We will be making gift bags for Meals on Wheels toiletries at the day meeting and filling them at the night meeting. You were generous in getting toiletries. I made 5 bags and put a pink or red ribbon for women and a blue for men and a red and blue ribbon for couples. We have several packages of toothpaste with 2 tubes and I would like them to go to a couple.

The website for the bags is www.diaryofaquilter.com/2013/06/easy-fat-quarter-drawstring-bag-tutorial.html

The fat quarter does not half to be exact. If you would like to make a few at home, let me know and I will see if I can get you some material from our stash or use your own stash. On Tuesday November 27 at the day meeting, we will need sewers to bring sewing machines, thread, scissors, olfa mats, rotary cutters and rulers to the morning meeting. If you have any ribbon 1″ width or less and fabric you would like to donate, this would be appreciated. The night group can fill the bags brought and made in the morning meeting.

If you have any questions, please call me at 210-422-4770.

Also if you have any “orphan threads” you would like to donate to Threads of Blessings, bring them to the November meetings. We are going to make this an ongoing outreach project. We always have “orphan” threads.
