At the March 2021 meeting, Pam Smith proposed that GRASG participate in the Hats and Mittens project for the revised Santa Claus Girls/Toys for Tots program for 2021. We are all asked to lighten our stash of fleece and make some mittens and hats for older children ages 7-14 years old. (Many people donate cute little things for toddlers.)
Save your donations until late fall, when we can hopefully meet again and give them to the Community Service chairpersons to deliver.
Lined mittens of fleece are quick and easy to make. So what are you waiting for? Check your stash for fleece scraps and get started warming the hands and hearts of many local children. Here are a few free patterns from Fleece For Fun to get you started:
Looking ahead: We are looking forward to having ArtPrize winner Ann Loveless present a trunk show at an upcoming 2021 meeting and hold in-person workshops the following day. As of yet, no specific date has been firmed up. Stay tuned' we'd love to have you join us.
Save the dates for future GRASG sewing retreats:
