PIGGY BANK BAZAAR
Greetings from Kermit!
This month’s big news is that the Take Home Kits will be
distributed on Sunday, May 19th,
in Fellowship Hall after the church service. Piggy Bank is hosting the
coffee hour, also in Fellowship Hall. Mrs. Ray (my nice human friend who
likes to spend time on a really, REALLY big pond!!!) tells me that there
is a good variety of Kits, so you’ll be able to find one perfect for
YOU! Each Kit comes complete with a sample of the craft, directions, and
all the materials you’ll need to make additional ones. Projects include
painting, working with beads, making bracelets and necklaces, simple
gluing, projects using a glue gun, and sewing. Completed Kits will be
due back right before this year’s Bazaar, which will be on December 7th.
Piggy Bank really depends on YOU to take these Kits and make more
goodies for the young humans in December, so PLEASE stop by and take a
Kit – or maybe two or three!!
Wednesday Morning Workshops for May will be held on the
at 9:30AM in Room 15 of the Education Center. There are lots of really
nice, simple craft projects ready to be made for the Bazaar, so please
come to the Workshops and JOIN IN making lots of gifts!
With many of our supplies used up preparing Take Home
Kits and working on current Workshop projects, Piggy’s Cupboard has a
number of open spaces, and we are in need of fabric scissors, seashells
of all sizes, glass and ceramic vases and bowls, small baskets, floral
foam, silk flowers, floral moss, small new flower pots, small pinecones,
fabric, fleece fabric, craft paint, paint craft brushes, yarn, macramé
cord, bells, wiggle eyes, beads, jewelry findings, used or broken
necklaces, new mugs, new pencils and pens, new paperclips, pom poms,
craft feathers and boas, wood shapes, new nails, screws, washers and
hooks, stickers, ribbon, doilies, votive holders, rhinestones, polished
rocks, scrapbooking supplies, handled grocery or department store paper
bags, Christmas wrapping paper, tissue paper, gift boxes, gift bags,
Scotch tape, painters tape, duct tape, and assorted craft supplies.
With Spring firmly entrenched, and Summer just around
the corner, I expect to be spending lots of time lounging on lily pads,
snagging food as it buzzes by. But I’ll be hopping around from time to
time, and I hope to see YOU at the Workshops and on Take Home Kit day!!
Yours in love,
