HONOR FLIGHT DAY--Honoring our Veterans

Honor Flight is one way of honoring our veterans. Honor Flight is a nationwide organization that presents Veterans of the Armed Forces the opportunity to fly to Washington, D.C. and visit special landmarks and memorials that are near and dear to them. The Phoenix chapter sends 350 veterans on this trip each year. As you know it is hard to find a community more caring and generous than quilters. We are looking for your assistance to have our contribution/donation one of many lap-sized quilts for this organization to present to their Honor Flight participants. You can make a red, white and blue quilt, any pattern, 40"x45" for wheelchair use or up to lap size, at home and bring your donation in on this day, or reserve a spot in class to work on one. We have set aside this day, just before Memorial Day, to remember all the sacrifices our veterans have given. You may also donate financially by contacting www.honorflightaz.org. Let's show our colors! Contact Gail if you have questions. Thank you for your service!

Sashiko and Butterflies with Gail

This class explores the world of Sashiko: Japanese handwork and applique. Gail will teach you all the various techniques you will need for this project. We'll use the time together to listen to soothing music, relax, and enjoy creating a masterpiece using this ancient artform. A kit (to be purchased on the day of the class with needles) will be ordered for you which will include the pattern, fabrics for the butterflies, Japanese thread, and enough fabric for borders. You will need to purchase your own backing. Please bring a personal sewing lamp if you need extra light, sharp scissors, and a soft thimble. No hoop is needed. Please don't wait until the last minute to sign up, so we can try to get an accurate number of kits ordered in time.
