2013 Annual Patchwork Sisters No-Sew Fleece Fellowship

It is time for our Annual No-Sew Blanket Making Fellowship again.  We have set the date to make fleece lap blankets on Saturday, November 23rd at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall.
Let's come together on that Saturday for a Thanksgiving fellowship as we work with thankful hands to
warm hearts : )

We will give a demo to first timers on how to get started with a fleece blanket. For the experienced blanket-makers, we encourage you to find partners and work in pairs (friends, sisters, mother/daughter & son) and fellowship at the same time.

You will need the following items to make a blanket:
1. a pair of sharp fabric scissors
2. sewing pins or safety pins
3. blue painter's tape
4. 1 1/3 (1.333) yard cut each of 2 pieces of matching fleece (1 with prints and 1 solid color) from Joann Fabric, 
or you can buy the pre-packaged and matching fleece that is 48 inches x 60 inches in size. 
(*Do not get the 60 x 72 inches as that will be too big)

Look out for fleece sales and coupons from Joann Fabric, especially during the Veteran's Day
weekend sale on November 9th till 11th.

If you do not have time to go to Joann's, we will have extra fleece available for those who would like to 
come and offer your labor. We appreciate any help we can get. 

We will serve a light brunch and you are welcome to bring a plate (fruits or snacks) to the table. We should wrap up by 2 pm.
