Grassroots Fundraising Works: Another Tote-Sew Day To Support New Garden Valley Library

The Friends of the Garden Valley Library and Garden Valley Quilter's Guild will hold another sewing day, to create Tote Bags to raise funds for the new Library.

Sewers will meet at the Senior Center again, 9:00 a.m. to about 3:00 p.m., on Wednesday, August 11th. Bring your sewing machine, walking foot if you have one, extra bobbins, customary sewing tools (scissors, seam ripper, tape measure, sturdy pins, etc.), and your lunch. They will provide beverages, dessert, napkins, kits, needles, thread and instruction.

If a few hours is all you have to offer that day--they'll take it! Don't be shy--all help accepted and appreciated!

And again, many thanks are offered to the ladies who sewed so industriously for the first "Tote-Sew" Day at the Senior Center (men are welcome too!). Everyone made excellent progress! If you have suggestions, they're very receptive! Longer handles in canvas, working in production mode for those who wish, and individual snips/trash bags for each sewer are three ideas they will be prepared for.

Call Christy Jauregui at 462-2437 or e-mail for info or suggestions.
