October 27 Meeting: Mixed-Media Mania
It’s all hands on deck for an 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 of "make and take" projects. 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. Sign-in at 5:30 p.m. 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. See the programs page for details.
Wear your DAFA apron to Mixed-Media Mania!
Vice president Patsi Davila promises a prize to every member who wears his or her DAFA apron to Mixed Media Mania on Monday, Oct. 27. What a great way to add a touch more fun to this creative evening! Patsi will also have the few remaining aprons in the inventory for sale that night – just $10 per apron. Get yours while they last!
While you’re at it, please remember to wear your name badge, too! We have many new members, and we want to get better acquainted all 'round!
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.
