Feb 2, 2015 Luau---Charity Fund Raiser Sew Day ---Luau

We are having a Luau!!! Come join us in the opportunity to raise some funds to benefit our Charity projects.  We have been commissioned to make 10 lap/throw size quilts from Hawaiian fabric for a Hawaiian family who recently lost their mother-grandmother.  The fabric and batting will be provided.  Bring your sewing tools and join us for a sewing Luau. Wear your Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts (if you have them).  Or you can just join us with your own projects to work on.  Hope to see you…See More
