Do you sew, quilt, knit, or crochet? Do you want to learn? Here is an opportunity to use your talents, learn new skills, share with others and donate to a worthy cause. We make needed items and donate them to different organizations. Our goal is to lift people’s spirits with these gifts, and show them Christ’s love, caring, and generosity. Anyone who has a giving heart and loves to create is welcome!
Please join us for our Creative Workshop on the second Saturday of each month from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm in room 123. Please enter through the door in the hallway between the offices and the adult wing, and turn left. Bring your projects to work on, including all your necessary supplies and equipment, and please bring your lunch! We will start with a short devotional, share with each other, teach and learn new skills, get to know each other, and have fun! We look forward to creating with you!
If you need help, please don’t hesitate to ask! We’re here to support you, and to help you create! If you want to learn something new, please ask, we want to teach you what you want to learn! We will be teaching something and working on a project at every Creative Workshop. For each new project, you’ll find a list of what you need to bring, and written instructions for projects will be available.
What Project do You want to Work On?
We offer lessons in sewing/quilting and knitting/ crochet every month! Please remember that regardless of the ‘lessons’ at a particular Workshop, please do come and work on any project you would like! Come be a part of the social time, we want you there to enjoy the fellowship! So, you may work on the lessons, or any other project you would like. See the Current Projects and Patterns pages to see all of the Projects! We have several that are ongoing, and you’re welcome to work on any of them.
There is a Women’s Tea scheduled for March 8th, which is our normal ’2nd Saturday’, so we moved our March Creative Workshop to March 15th. It will be from 9:30 – 2:00 pm, and these are the new lessons:
We’ll be doing a quilt by Fons & Porter called Junctures! On page 5 of the pattern is the fabric requirements for a baby/lap size quilt, or see below. They are listed as black, white and gray, but you can use any color theme you would like! Think of them as light, medium and dark! You could also mix colors, such as red/pink/purple, or blue/green/aqua! I think the stripe adds to the charm of this quilt, so maybe pick that first, then find coordinating colors! Please feel free to use your imagination!
Stripe: 1 yard
Light print: 1 fat quarter
Medium print: 1 fat quarter
Dark print: 5/8 yard
Backing: 1 3/8 yards
We will be doing three different patterns for crochet pocket scarves. Please bring size H crochet hook, and in worsted weight yarn, 7 ounces of your main color, and 2 ounces in a contrasting color. The contrasting color will be for a stripe in the scarf, and the cuff of the pocket.
We are working on Jireh Sports hats & scarves! The meter is up for keeping tally of how many are made on the Jireh Sports Progress page. Check back periodically to track how many we have so it will be easy for you to see what we still need. Our goal will be to have most of them made by the end of Summer, so we don’t have a ‘crunch’ time in November and December.
