Coming in June
The prayer shawl group will continue on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month.
Alternating with this I am asking for help in making some items for the 150th Anniversary dinner and craft fair in October. This will be a crafting session, very easy stuff to begin. You just have to bring yourself and I will show you what to do. The LOVE folded book is a possibility, but we will start with something simple, but useful.
In this vein, I am also asking for you to clean out your junk craft drawers, closets and bookshelves because we need some things.
I could buy this stuff, but you don't get variety and the cost adds up so fast when getting it from the craft or dollar stores. We need bits and pieces of lots of things. If you're a crafter, you understand.
Items we need: Please bring them to the church.
*Paperback books any kind and hard back books 350-500 pages. (I have bigger ones.) The page ends need to be clean and the pages not old and stiff.
*Ribbon cloth type (not curling ribbon or paper), 1/2 inch to one inch. Plain colors are best, but buffalo check and even a Christmas print would be good.
*Bling like strings of pearls, rhinestones, beads (Like from dollar store). Beads should be on the petite side, less than 1/4 inch.(Or some bling are in 1-inch rows but can be cut down.)
*Buttons that are unique are great. Christmas ones also a plus.
*Flat lace around 1/2-1 inch. white, beige or colors that are kind of antique would be best. Maybe even a red or green could be used. flat on one side and wavy on the other side is fancier, but wider straight will work.
*Silk type flowers and leaves. Mostly like 1-2,5 inch, but some bigger ones are OK. I would even like some of the flowers that are burlap and burlap ribbon.
*If you have some snowflake sequins or table scatters that would work into the crafts, too.
*Mini glue sticks we go through them like water.
*An extra glue gun would be helpful.
*I could also use some bankers boxes or paper boxes with lids to store stuff.
Starting in June: Prayer shawl 1st and 3rd Friday afternoons at 1 p.m.
Craft time on the 2nd and 4th Friday afternoons at 1 p.m.
Both are in the Chapel
Remember that there is a craft fair in October. We are looking for heritage as well as modern crafts. Maybe some jams or jellies or salsa as we work with our gardening. Keep it in mind as the year goes on.
