Chair-ity Affair Patchwork Party: Sunday, Feb. 8

Apologies for the late notice, but we'd love for you to help us decorate our chair for A Chair-ity Affair, put on by the Care for Kids Foundation. We'll be working on the chair from 3-6pm in the Harrison Center gymnasium. Sunday, February 8.

Free to members. $5 for non-members.

OUR CONCEPT: A Craft Nest.

OUR GAME PLAN: Have each member (and non-member) contribute a portion of the chair. We'll have some spare fabrics and notions for you to dig through. But, if you have something specific in mind, come armed with your choices of thread, needles, notions, etc to make your "patch" for our patchwork nest. All of the patches will be sewn together and will represent our organization. We'll also need a couple of volunteers to create the pillows that will accompany our Craft Nest. We're thinking egg or bird shaped might be appropriate. Felt? Perhaps. Any other ideas are always more than welcome.

So, come armed and ready to dig in and have a great time. It's for a good cause and it's a great way to promote the ICM. And, heck, if our chair wins a prize, the ICM can put money in the bank to go towards upcoming workshops and events.

RECOMMENDATION: When you're thinking about your design, you may keep in mind that portions of the design could be cropped when assembling the overall design. This would effect any text used in a design.

LOCATION: The Harrison Center for the Arts
1505 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202
