Katie is soaking up sun in Florida, so I am in charge. You know I let her think she is in charge when she is around. Anyway, I wanted to remind you that we have First Friday Sew-In this week - I know, great planning - the night before the Registration/Open House. Thankfully, Katie will be back to make sure everything flows smoothly.
By now you should have received your Spring Class Schedule in the mail. You may have noticed that we have implemented a new policy for certain gatherings - including First Friday. We will sell you a punch card for $20.00, which will allow you to attend four gatherings. Besides First Friday, you may use the card for Featherweight Drop-In Club, and a new UFO Drop-In Club that we are trying this session. You can read more about it in the newsletter.
The new policy should technically take effect this at this week's Friday Sew-In, but I would like, instead, to ask each person attending (or even if you aren't attending), to bring Non-perishable food items or personal care items worth about $5.oo for us to donate to the Cary-Grove Food Pantry. If you would prefer to donate cash, we will see that it gets to the Food Pantry, as well.
I know that times are tough for all of us, but there are always people that are worse-off than we are. A small donation can go a long way. We will set up some kind of donation center in the shop, and continue to collect donations through December 12th.
