|My contribution for the swap.|
Normally we work on our own projects during our gathering time and occasionally we work on our service projects. Mary Jane read a letter forwarded to her from a base group for whom we contribute our sewing skills. It seems that some grateful ladies in Kenya received our gifts and they were most appreciated. It is wonderful to hear from these people half way across the world.
|Our Dear Kay was the recipient of the towel.|
|Rose chooses little mug rugs with sweet little beads on the bindings.|
|Barb has a sweet little mug rug and mug!|
|Pat choose the star ornament. That's Linda at the far end of the table, she choose a sweet little Spring theme towel for her kitchen.|
|Pat unwrapping the star ornament so carefully packaged.|
Of course some treats were required, Kay made sweet little cupcakes and Karen brought us some wonderful peanut butter Hershey kiss cookies.
- Conclusion for the day.
- Even a Hallmark Holiday can enrich the Sewist.
- You know how strongly I feel about creative groups. No matter what the focus, no matter what this history of the participants, we can all learn from each other.
- If there is no such thing in your area, make your own. Advertise in your church or library, talk to ladies at the bus stop with their children. No matter where you come into contact with other enthusiasts (such as a quilt shop) recruit those who may be interested and contribute their talents. I know for a fact.....this is a good thing:)
