Crafts for a Cause will meet THREE times during May to work on comfort items for local hospitals and shelters, so mark your calendars now! We will meet Wed., May 4 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. to finish up the projects started on Good Works Day. There will also be two Monday night sessions on May 9 and May 23 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 122. In June, we will meet on June 6 and June 20.
After May 4, the Wednesday morning sessions will be put on hold for a while. If anyone is interested in meeting during the daytime, please contact Molly Sprouse so we can set that up.
Meanwhile, the crafts group continues to work on the new project of making cotton dresses for needy girls. We sent about 50 to Heart to Heart in Honduras, and another 50 to an organization that distributes them to girls in Uganda. We are buying cotton fabric for the dresses, but if anyone has new or gently used cotton pillowcases in kid-friendly prints, we would be happy to receive those as well.
Every month, Crafts commits to providing 20 neck pillows for chemotherapy patients at Fair Oaks Hospital, along with lap blankets, surgery dolls, sock dolls and the much-loved newborn baby caps (provided by Judy Osha and Nell Gilmore). Everyone is welcome to drop in on crafts at any of our meetings. No skills required; just a willing heart and hands. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.
