Hello there, CLC Youth and Families!
We finished a couple child-sized quilts for Cristo Rey in El Paso on Sunday and have a couple more in the works, so we're starting to build up some steam!
Now that we have our own sewing machines, thanks to Kaye and Norman Bolles, and are being taught how to use them by Dorothy Nail and other quilters, thank you so much, we should set a goal for how many quilts we want to build by the time the mini bus drives down to El Paso!
We need to meet to discuss that and your logistics and calendars for these textile engineering sessions. I'd also like to know whether you'd like to track these volunteer hours for school, and whether you have friends or acquaintances who'd like those, or simply want to be part of this beautiful work to give comfort to the detained children in Texas. Plus learning how to operate a sewing machine and create your visions with textiles! We are liking these machines!
Please email, call or text me as soon as possible about your Saturday and Sunday times available. We had a great time last Saturday.
Peace be with you! Gail W-R, your faithful Coordinator.
