Happenings, Happenings - Up-Dated!!!

A few posts back, I wrote about our new "Lagniappe " classes. Once a month, we (let me be more specific: Linda Kay!) will host a class that teaches the student something that can be made quickly. The idea is to be a helpful method of preparing yourself for Christmas or any gift-giving, really. When you want to give something of yourself (at the last minute, even) now you can have a veritable arsenal of ideas at your fingertips.

Here are the results from the first class last weekend: The Bucket Class

Now that you have seen this, here is what's coming up:

Feb 20, 10 am - 1pm Learn to sew a quilted cover for a folding "camp stool"! You can buy one of these at Wal-Mart and you will need it when you come. You'll get the class supply list when you sign up. Too cute. And so easy to stow away when it's not needed. How great would that be to cover with school colors and send off to college in the fall?

Up-Date: Linda Kay has made it official: March 20 Lagniappe Class will be the Bucket Basket.

Call to reserve your spot!

And speaking of coming up, next week, Feb. 5 is UFO Friday.

Pearl sent out an email concerning two volunteer Outreach projects you might be interested in joining. One is to sew "ditty bags" (Pouches of Comfort) for the women soldiers to stow their personal items while they are in fatigues and the other is to make pillowcases for Ronnie's Life Ministry, through St. Timothy's Church in Mandeville, LA.

You don't sew much but would like to help anyway?, great! We'll get you cutting up the fabric. You say you don't cut too good? No problem! You can doing the turning and keep us in stitches.

If you would like to help out with either of these two projects or would like to bring your UFO in and join us for the camarderie, bring your machine, UFO's, donated fabrics, cutting/piecing tools and good cheer next Friday. And a snack! Snacks are good! (I'll hit the Chinese take-out, meself)

We're going to sew up a storm ALL DAY at Bright Hopes Quilting. Feb 5 That's next Friday.
