Sewing for the Summer

Most of my summer sewing will be community service projects for our ASG chapter. We are making pillowcases for the local Ronald McDonald House & stuffed turtle pillows for LeBonheur Children's Hospital. I do hope to get one or two items made for me. Also, our ASG chapter is sewing during the summer for our upcoming craft fair in the fall. We're making oven mitts, potholders, bookmarks, free standing lace bookmarks, Christmas ornaments & Christmas stockings. I hope we're able to raise enough funds to bring in a national educator for 2010. I did get to draft patterns for the oven mitt, the potholders, stockings & ornaments. We're using donated fabrics with the guild picking up the expenses for Insul-brite & 100% cotton batting.

ASG is commited to doing charity sewing. Sounds like you are quite embedded in your chapter.

Yes, Gwen, I'm chapter president. It keeps me busy as well as my "Stitching Hearts" sewing ministry. In July, I'll be teaching elementary children how to sew 3 hours a week on Wednesday afternoons. It should be fun. I don't do this for money, I do it for the love of sewing.

Marty your chapter seem to be doing quite a few wonderful things. I want to do the same thing you are doing with young children,when I retire in a year or two. I have really enjoyed reading your blog. I live about 70 miles from you in Clarksdale Mississippi.
