February Sew-In

Dear Alzheimer's Sew-in Volunteers,

Valentine's Day seems like a great time to make some special gifts for special people. I have missed all of you and look forward to getting together on Saturday, February 14.

I delivered a box of activity books, yarn bundles and ribbon tassels to AGE (Austin Groups to the Elderly)
last week. The activity director was so excited.  She is planning various activities with these aids. They will use the yarn bundles and tassels to liven-up their exercise/dance time. Thanks for making these.

We are currently low on the books so I think we should work on these this week. We can use sergers for edging pages and sewing machines to sew on the trims with plain or decorative stitches. This should be a fun day giving us a chance to try out a variety of sewing skills and sew for a purpose.

Hope to see you next Saturday,
