from Gen Henderson . . . FLOOD VICTIMS
I have an unusual request. I'm sure you've heard about the awful flood in Minot, ND. I used to live there and consider it home. They are in need of quilts for the shelters. [I am] requesting that anyone with spare quilts that they would be willing to donate, do so. I'll pick them up and ship at my expense.
If anyone wants to mail directly the address is:
PO box 456
Minot, ND 58701
from Lori Covert . . . ART CLUB
As you all remember, Joan has volunteered to show us how to color fabric with Sharpie (or any type of permanent markers) and rubbing alcohol. The fun happens this Thursday - 6/30 from 6-8 pm.
Joan tells me this can be a bit smelly, so we may want to go outside or upstairs and open the windows....
Everyone needs to bring:
something to protect your clothing, or old shirt
fabric... light colored and/or white
gloves, if you prefer
piece of freezer paper or al. foil (the shop has freezer paper)
sharpie markers, broad tip is great but any will work. Joan will be bringing several colors for all to use, too.
Optional: lace, ribbon, eyedropper
Joan will be bringing to share:
rubbing alcohol, sharpies in assorted colors, and miscellaneous items needed
a drop cloth in case we go outside
See you Thursday!
