Frolic time!

To raise money for mission projects, our church is holding FROLICS. I am hosting a sewing frolic in June. I am really excited about this opportunity to share my love of embroidery with others for a good cause. Here's my Frolic description:

Title of Frolic: A Stitchin' Time
Date of Frolic: Saturday, June 6, 2009
Time of Frolic: 9 am until noon

Description of Frolic: No matter what your sewing skills are, you can create an adorable hand-embroidered t-shirt for that special little boy or girl in your life. Carrie will take you through the process of personalizing a boring t-shirt step-by-step, from the use of stabilizer and iron-on patterns, to basic stitches (stem, split and satin) and finishing techniques. Carrie will provide a variety of kitschy Jenny Hart designs from which to choose, but if you have one of your own in mind, please feel free to bring it. You will be provided with a high-quality white t-shirt, stabilizer, embroidery floss, small embroidery hoop and a needle. Shirts range in size from 2T to 5T; please indicate which size you want when you sign up for the frolic. If you prefer a smaller size, or a onesie, please indicate as such when you sign up for the frolic. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

Number of guests: maximum of 10, ages 12 and up
Cost per participant: $35 (price includes shirt, stabilizer, iron-on design of your choice, embroidery floss selection, embroidery hoop and needle)

Fun, huh? So I've submitted it to the person in charge of organizing the whole project, and there will be a book of all the options available for the church, as well as members of the community, starting next Sunday. The pastor, an avid woodworker, is hosting a woodworking workshop. Mike is signing up for that one. Since it isn't going to be held until October, that is going to be Mike's birthday present.
