Fredericksburg Notion to SewFredericksburg Notion to Sew Neighborhood Group has changed its meeting place; it will no longer meet at Hobby Lobby. We will meet in the morning at Salem Church Library in Fredericksburg.
In July, we invite any ASG member who wishes to join us in making the National Charity Sewing project to come to Salem Church library (Fredericksburg) on July 8th in the morning, meeting rooms 3 and 4. Bring your yard of cozy flannel (solid suggested) and 12 inches of a kid friendly print fabric and we will assist you in putting together 4 wish pillows. These need to be finished by the date of the National meeting in Orlando; we now have an address where they are to be sent. Pillows are NOT to be stuffed before sending.
Our August meeting, again at the Salem Church Library, encourages you to bring a project you stopped working on as you needed fitting help or construction help. Those present will be glad to assist. Some of our members who missed making the jewelry roll meeting are looking forward to making it at this meeting. All welcome to join us.
