We are sending a package to our troops deployed in Afghanistan. This package will include
1. Fabric postcards. The theme is Red & White …use your imagination. If you have not made a fabric postcard, click the link for instructions. This is just an example of the many sites available. An internet search will give you many pages of links. Before you buy a ‘stiffener’ ( like Timtex) contact another member, many of us have more than we will use in a life time.
2. We will fill a “We Care” box. Suggestions for items: toiletries (for ladies and gents) food stuffs like candy/cereal bars, dry soups,(think foods that are reconstituted) tisanes, gum, magazines,Tim H. coupons and any other appropriate item(s) that you may think of. No Perishables
Also at this meeting the programme committee invites you to
View the RED & WHITE postcards.
Wear something red.
Drink tea, munch on treats. (Make life easier for all and bring your own cup.)
Participate in a Silent Auction. If you have done the usual New Year tidy-up and now have a pile of sewing related items languishing about consider bringing them for this auction. We also like plants, pies and preserves. Two things to remember….
1. one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
2. If no one buys it you take it home again….to avoid doing this think presentation. :)
See you there, Thursday Feb. 18th 1:30
