While we're talking about repairing the world, how about warming the world? We're thinking about re-starting "Crafts and Coffee" nights, but with an additional focus. If you have a project you want to bring along to work on while you share conversation and hot beverages with other crafters, that's super -- and if you want to start something new, here's our suggestion: Bring a skein of yarn and your knitting/crocheting tools and make a simple hat or scarf for a homeless person. We have a JFCS contact who works directly with Louisville's homeless population, and word from her is that it's cold outdoors and getting colder. She will be delighted to pass along any items -- handmade or not -- to people who need them.
If your skills don't run to knitting or crocheting, but you think you can manage scissors okay, I have a stash of acrylic fleece and I'd love to show you how to make no-sew scarves. And if you don't want to work on a project, you're still welcome to join us -- we'd love the company!
Please call or email Cynthia Canada if this interests you; I want to know what day or evening of the month would work best for the most people. We could meet on a weeknight, or possibly on a Sunday, monthly or maybe even twice a month. I'm open to whatever we can work out for the most people.
