MEETINGS ARE BACK
Meetings are BACK TO OUR THIRD SATURDAY’S OF THE MONTH AT COMMUNITY OF HOPE, MAY 15, 9:30-11:00. Meetings will be on the 3rd Saturday of the month at our beloved Community of Hope on Ohio St.
Programs following meetings starting in June: Even numbered months will be for a Piecemaker Sew-in: February, April, June, August, and October ODD number months will be for members to work on their own projects: January, March, May, July, September, November. December will be reserved for our Holiday party.
Starting in June we will get back to our Secret Pal Swap. Make something your choice to Swap. Put your item in a bag so know one can see it. Swapping will be held after the meeting.
SECRET PAL SWAP - Make something of your choice to Swap. Put your item in a bag so no one can see it. Swapping fun will be held after the meeting.
How to play:
#1 Make something....let your imagination run wild, it just has to be handmade.
#2 Be sure to add your name to the back of it, if you cannot add a label, then be sure to put a card with it.
#3 Put your gift in a bag (Dollar store gift bags work great) and seal it BUT do not put your name on the bag...it is a secret until after the swap.
#4 If you cannot make the meeting, but want to play, send your gift with a member that will be going!
#4 Secret Sister Gift Exchange will follow our General Meeting on June 19th.
Added bonus for playing in our first swap of 2021: One gift bag will have a surprise from England in it. The surprise will go with the handmade gift that our member made. To win you will need to participate.

COH will be setting up tables for us and we need to know how many to set up.
COH East is excited to have us there and was very warm and friendly to us when we met with them. The room is large and we will be able to have one of our cabinets there. (Yea!). Will need to sweep and wipe tables when done.
They know we are a secular group with various religions and beliefs. But in order to meet at COH we need to have something that has a God factor. What Cindy and COH has agreed on is that during our meetings if someone has a need and would like to have us pray for them we will log it into a journal. Then a group of us will pray for the request during the week at home. If you would like to be a part of the Prayer Warrior Team let Cindy know. She needs help! We will not impose this on anyone who does not feel comfortable.
Bring your own drinks. We cannot use coffee maker because of Covid regulations. They have microwave and refrigerator we can use.
We will continue the $1 donations. Money will be donated to the food pantry.
If you like to donate food to the pantry, the food we donate will go to the homeless ministry or the Police officer lounge. Items to donate are small portion item, canned food with pop top lids, all premade food, or $10 gift cards to Publix or Walmart.
Also please no swearing or talking off color topics.
Looking forward to getting back to sewing with everyone.
