Hello out there…  Just wanted to let you know about the upcoming items that we have going on here in the shop for this week and next.
Stitch Out! We will be preparing lap blankets for The Fairbanks Alzheimer’s Association.  There will be 2 events coming up:

  • Wed. April 15th from 5-8 p.m.  (Cutting of blocks & sorting stacks)
  • Sat. April 18th from 12-4 p.m.  (Sewing blocks together)

We have not had a lot of material turned in, so this may go faster than we anticipated.  If you have a chance to go through your fabric stash, we would GREATLY appreciate it.  We seriously need a lot more material, any material that has a great texture, color, pattern and can hold up to many washings would be perfect!  There is a use for material in larger quantities to that we can use for the backing of the blankets too.
