Got a Machine? Sew Totes For GV Library Fundraising

The Friends of the Garden Valley Library, in conjunction with the GV Quilter's Guild, have reserved the Senior Center for Wednesday, July 28th , 9:00 a.m., to sew together some really fun tote bags to sell in support of the new library. Kathy Passie and Christy Jauregui have cut out over seventy-five bags and have them ready to sew, but they need help. The bags are quite easy to sew together, but will require your sewing machine to be in good condition. You will also need thread-cutting scissors, tape measure, pins, seam ripper and extra bobbins. They will provide the kit, threads, needles, and step by step instructions. Everyone will do one together, before they turn you loose to help them get all kits completed.

Bring your lunch; they'll provide beverages, napkins and dessert. Plans are to finish up around 3:00. If you can help all day, wonderful! but even a few hours would be appreciated. Give Christy a call (462-2437), if you have any questions.

An RSVP by return e-mail will help them with set up and to get there with enough dessert! But even if you don't reply and then decide to join them, they'd be delighted!
