Thanks everyone for attending the last Open House of the year. I hope you got stocked up for the next few months as our next Open House will not be until February 9, 2019.

January 12 will be our Appreciation Luncheon at The Beatitudes Campus at 1610 W. Glendale in the Life Center (same place as last year). We don’t have the menu yet, but it will probably be roast beef.  The deadline to sign up will be December 31, so if you haven’t signed up, please email me today.  I will be adding more names to our Stitches of Love Angels placque.  Jerry regards us as all his angels, so please nominate anyone (past or current) who you think should be added.  I will need your nomination by December 1 to give us time to have the names added.  Many thanks to BHHS Legacy for sponsoring our luncheon. 

Thanks to everyone who pitched in to create the Santa bags for OCJ Kids.  We finished 56 and with the fabric donated, I completed 9 more. If you have any completed Santa bags to turn in, please give them to Mary Cotterman at Legacy by Wednesday, November 21.  The entrance to Legacy is the big metal gate to the right when you first enter the parking area.  You can park in any of the visitor spots.  Upon going thru the gate, continue walking straight back to the double doors.  Lindsey is the Admin and can take your bags.  Mary will then take your bags to OCJ Kids so they can start to load them up for their Christmas parties beginning on December 15.  Thanks again for helping us help out another charity.

Mary is working hard to have the inventory completed so please watch our Facebook group or check the website for the latest update.  Please remember that we would like to work on tops sizes 12 and up so the girls can select 2 tops instead of a top/skirt/leggings or a dress.   Leggings are a challenge to find and purchase but we are doing the best we can. 

Our last event for this year will be our 35th Ave Sew day on November 25.  We will not have a sewing day there in December or anything at the BTSCD office.

We hope everyone has the Happiest Thanksgiving, Merriest Christmas, and the best New Year!  See you at our Appreciation Luncheon on January 12.

Your Running Stitches Committee
