2014 Annual Patchwork Sisters No-Sew Fleece Fellowship

Please save the date: November 22nd, 2014 (Saturday)!

We will meet at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall  to make 
beautiful fleece lap blankets. What a wonderful way to
spend the Saturday before Thanksgiving in Fellowship 
and Thanks Giving to the Lord! 

Grace Ganger is looking into some places (senior homes,
Hospice of the Valley, VA Hospital...) to donate the blankets
this year. We invite you to join us when we deliver the
blankets sometime in mid-December...more details to
follow later.

We will give a demonstration to first timers on how to get started with a
No-Sew fleece blanket. 

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 from Joann's 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)

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 time and labor. We appreciate any help we can get. 

We will serve brunch and you are welcome to bring a plate (fruits or snacks) to the table. 
We should wrap up by 2 pm.
 If you have any questions, feel free to email Pam Bakas.

Patchwork Sisters' Spring Dim Sum Brunch - Drive for the Changing Lives Center

We are hosting a drive the the Changing Lives Center for Women and Children (Phoenix Rescue Mission).  As the only faith-based recovery program in the region offering long-term, comprehensive services, the Changing Lives Center helps single women and mothers with children to rebuild their lives. This 12-18 month program provides a stable, nurturing environment where women are able to work through addiction and abuse issues. They also receive life skills education and other counseling, and ultimately become self-sufficient through career assessment and job placement. - See more at: Changing Lives Center for Women & Children

Items most needed:
diapers, wipes, baby hygiene products, sanitary napkins, tampons, hygiene products (shampoo, body wash/soap, conditioner, lotion, deodorant)

The Changing Lives Center really need your help.  Please drop off donations at the Spring Dim Sum Brunch or call or text Shirley Chang at her cell phone if you have large items for donation and would like to arrange for the items to be picked up.  

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
