October 27 Meeting: Mixed-Media Mania

Felted pins by Louise Schubert

It’s all hands on deck for a hands-on evening of Mixed-Media Mania on Monday, Oct. 27! Mini-workshop chair Beth Swider promises a repeat of the fun members have had with this annual tradition. Participants rotate from one teacher’s station to another throughout the evening, spending about 25 minutes at each station making a special project and learning a new technique. The teaching begins at 6 p.m.

 

DAFA members leading the fun this year are Brenda McKinney, teaching Duct Tape Bracelets; Louise Schubert, teaching Felted Pins; JoAnn Musso, teaching Dior Roses; and Yvonne Perez, teaching Halloween ATCs. Watch here for more details.

Community Service Project: Dress a Girl Around the World

Brenda McKinney and Barbara Kirksey invite your participation in a DAFA community service project -- making dresses for "Dress a Girl Around the World." DAFA's efforts will be part of the well-known international project that supplies simple dresses for young girls in need of love, respect and something to wear.

 

Members who sew are encouraged to use their spare time this summer making "pillowcase dresses." Others are encouraged to help with supplies and other kinds of assistance. (Find more information on the Community Service page.) More group play days/ work days like the one on May 17 will be scheduled soon.
