We are pleased each year to support the Salvation Army Fabric Fair with your generous contribution of fabrics, notions, yarns and crafting supplies. Remember to bring your donations to the festival this year, they are greatly appreciated. This year we are pleased to support another organization. The Charity lounge will feature both Warm Up America donations and projects, as well as instructions for the Red Heart/Red Cross blankets. Red Heart has teamed up with the Red Cross to provide blankets for those in need and will be sending materials, supplies and instructions for the knitted and crocheted blankets. These can be started on site in the Charity Lounge and continued at home or with your group or guild as a team effort.
So if you are not taking classes and have some free time at the Festival, we hope you can join us in the Charity Lounge.
In the Creative Open Studio, the extra creative blocks made will be donated to Annie Stunden’s sewing group to make quilts for the East End Cooperative Ministry.
Have you been bitten by the coloring craze? While in California at the Mega Craft and Hobby Association trade show, I was amazed by the numerous coloring books, panels and activities that allow us some playtime and great stress relief. We are thrilled to include a “Coloring Lounge” at the Festival this year. We will have coloring pages, pencils, markers and gel pens for you to play with, graciously provided by Leisure Arts.
With Warm Regards,
Barb and Ann
