Lemonade and Squares
June 22 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
In response to our call for 12” squares recently, we received well over 500 squares. The cotton squares continue to be given to various Retirement and Memory Care facilities for use as washcloths and we have given many small laundry baskets with 1 dozen or so acrylic squares for folding to any of the Memory Care facilities that wanted them. Extra squares have been used to create Sunshine Bags for Memory Care.
We still have many squares left and we have decided that most of these would make fantastic blankets.
So, you are invited to join us at the workshop, anytime, on Saturday June 22 where From the Heart will be hosting a “Lemonade and Squares” event. The squares we plan to use for making blankets at this event will be sorted by size, bagged, and ready for your use on the 22nd. You can stay for the entire day, from 10:00am until 2:00pm or just drop by at any point during the day for any period of time you want. We will be demonstrating various methods of joining the squares and will yarn, crochet hooks, tapestry needles, measuring tapes, etc. on hand for you to us.
Some of the methods we will use for joining are given as the pattern this month so do feel free to familiarize yourself with these, should you wish, before the 22nd.
In addition to squares to join, we will have lemonade and cookies for you to enjoy. If you want to, let Tricia or Lois know you plan to attend (so we can be sure to have sufficient lemonade and cookies on hand) but, if you don’t “register”, don’t let that stop you from showing up. Your help will be greatly appreciated either way.
