No Sew Blanket Fellowship

As we ease slowly into the "cooler" season of the Arizona Fall weather, we will be getting ready for our third Annual No-Sew Fleece Blanket-making Fellowship. The lap blankets that we will be making will be donated to several senior homes. Your service of love by giving your time and resources to make the blankets will warm the hearts and souls of many recipients this winter. Instructions on how to make the blankets will be provided and light brunch will be served as you work on your blankets. Please save the date and come join us for a wonderful time of fellowship.

Date: Nov 6, 2010
Time: 10am - 2pm
Venue: GPCCC Fellowship Hall

You will need the following items to make your blanket:
1. A pair of sharp fabric scissors
2. Safety pins or sewing pins
3. 2 pieces of matching fleece fabric:
Joann's Fabrics will be having a fleece sale from October 17th till 23rd.

1. You can buy the pre-cut and packaged fleece (2 pieces) that has a matching solid and print fleece. The cost is $19.99 per pack for the 48 inch size and will be on sale for "buy one get one free" starting this Sunday.

2. If you prefer to choose your own matching fleece (1 with prints and 1 plain fleece), you should cut one and one thirds of a yard (48 inches) of each fleece. This fleece will also be on sale for 50 to 60% off the regular price starting this Sunday.

Please RSVP to Pam Bakas so that we can plan for the set-up of tables. Thanks!
