Hi,

The Fiber Arts Fiesta is coming up fast!  May 21-23 the Manuel Lujan Complex
at Expo New Mexico will be filled with works of fiber art covering the spectrum
of quilting, silk painting, knitting, crochet, lace, embroidery beads and more.  
This show is biennial so it won't come around again until 2017.  Don't miss it!

             http://abqfiberartscouncil.org/fiesta.html

Jane Casey is getting a head start on the annual "First Day of School Project".
Her mission is to ensure every first grader starts school fully clothed.  Sponsored
by the Albuquerque chapter of the American Sewing Guild in cooperation with the 
Title One Homeless Project, a public elementary school with a large homeless
population has been chosen to receive homemade clothing for first grade students
in need.  Why?  Because having something new to wear contributes to a positive
experience on the first day of school.

Garments are needed in sizes 5-7 for both boys and girls.  Please be sure a sewn-in
label with the size clearly written is included in either the back neck or waist of 
the garment.  If the garment consists of 2 or 3 pieces, please label all of them.  
Feel free to make as many outfits as you like.  An outfit consists of a shirt or 
blouse and pants, or a skirt/jumper and top or a dress.

Jane needs our contributions no later than July 9, 2015, so they can be
delivered to the teachers who will give them to the parents of the first graders.
Drop off at Nob Hill Fabrics and we will make sure they get to Jane on time.
Questions?  Contact Jane at janecasey@juno.com.
