Help Us at Thursday’s Meeting

Thursday SQG meeting opportunity for anyone who would like to participate…

At the December meeting Vicki Tallacksen and Jane Erickson talked about the
possibility of making reusable cloth pads for girls in poverty in countries abroad
through Operation Christmas Child.

We will have instructions and materials to demonstrate and make some of these.
If you would like to join us all you need to do is bring your scissors.

You may read more about this at Grace Church (click HERE).

Look forward to seeing you on Thursday with your hand sewing projects or
your scissors!
