The August Social will be held on Friday, August 14th, from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm in the classroom at Franklin Mill Store, 305 Union Street, Franklin.
Join us for an evening of sewing and socializing, and feel free to bring a guest! Pat will be demonstrating a quick and easy pillowcase with French seams (no seams exposed). If interested please bring the following precut fabrics:
27 1/2″ X 42″ for the body
9 1/2″ X 42″ for the cuff
2″ X 42″ for the accent piece
Don’t forget your machine and sewing supplies. There are some machines available in the classroom, but we cannot guarantee they are threaded, etc.
Our Charity Committee is collecting pillowcases for their donation to Quilts Of Valor.
Collections are being made through September. Cases MUST be made in a patriotic red,white and blue theme; but please, NO gold (as that is for the fallen heroes) and NO glitter in the fabric. This is a great opportunity to learn to make a pillowcase plus give to a worthy cause.
An appetizer, dessert, or cool drink is greatly appreciated. We will provide the ice, water, and paper goods AND air conditioning!
Keep in mind that FMS closes at 5:00 pm, so if you plan on shopping before the social starts, arrive early!
Look forward to seeing you there!
Pat, Social Chairperson
