Good Afternoon, Beaders!
We are having our Westbank meeting on Saturday, November 27, beginning at 1 p.m. at Love Lutheran Church, 3730 MacArthur, Algiers. If anyone needs directions, please e-mail me.
Our meeting will be to make origami jewelry boxes for our Christmas Sparkle Project. We have lots of lovely beaded donations and if anyone is still working on any pieces, please feel free to bring them at the meeting to finish them up. It is recommended that you bring a pair of scissors, a ruler and tissue paper to line the boxes. If you have any ribbon in Christmas colors hanging around, you may want to bring some, but it’s not necessary. Vicki said she has plenty of the card stock for the boxes, glue and ribbon.
Here’s a big “THANK YOU” to everyone who has participated in our first community outreach effort. We are going to put lots of smiles on people’s faces at the Battered Women’s Shelter in what could otherwise have been a bleary and sad day.
Our Christmas Party will be held on December 18, same time–same place. Please mark the date on your calendars. And for the astute readers, y’all know how notorious I am with dates, so to answer any head-scratching questions, YES, we are meeting on the third Saturday in December! This is usually the only month we change from our regularly scheduled meetings.
We will exchange a $5.00 bead-related gift and it is “bring a gift, get a gift.” We are also asking everyone to bring either a snack-related food, dessert item or dish to share. I’ll bring soft drinks and paper items. We will also talk about any ideas and/or projects for 2011 and what type of community outreach project we would like to do.
Please plan on coming and enjoying the Holiday Spirit with our beading friends!
