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 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th, 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,
