The Block Party date for 2010 is February 5th 2010! Below is a little information from the flier I made.
When: February 5th, 2011 at 9 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (or as long as you can stay)
Where: At W****c**** Christian Fellowship Church - Email me forhisgloryhandiwork (at) gmail (dot) com for directions and location
What: Everyone brings 6” crocheted or knitted squares, and we all sew them together and make blankets for an orphanage in Eastern Europe.
R.S.V.P.: Please R.S.V.P. to Sarah via email at forhisgloryhandiwork (at) gmail (dot) com, or by commenting here.
Bring: Finished 6” squares (any yarn can be used, it just needs to be machine washable), tapestry or yarn needles (please bring as many as you have). We are also going to be collecting anything warm that can be made out of yarn to wear (baby hats, hats, slippers, baby booties, scarves, etc.) Please have squares there by 9:15 a.m.
Join us for a day of fun, fellowship, and make some new friends! Snacks and punch will be served throughout the day. Lunch will also be provided.
Everything we collect and make will be sent over to a very poor orphanage in Eastern Europe. This is the same orphanage we recently adopted my little brother Elijah from, and all the children are tiny and undernourished. You could very well be saving a life by helping to make one of the blankets! If you would like to help, but you can’t make the date (or live too far away), please get your squares to me ahead of time so we can use them. Please email me for my address. If you have any questions, please contact me using the info above.
Oh and along with the Block Party theme, I have to confess (unfortunately) that I am a
I encourage you to have a contest with someone else to see who can get the most squares done in a short amount of time. It will get more blocks done that way, and its fun to have some competition to motivate you to work on it! If you don't have a crocheting buddy to do it with, email me! I would be happy to do it with you!
And speaking of Rachel, stay tuned for my next post...
