ASAP First FridayOn First Friday in September, I will be welcoming Eileen Deloff, from A.S.A.P. (Americans Serving Abroad Project). She will have beautiful handmade pillows for sale.  She sews these pillows from African fabric that she bought last March when she visited Ghana. The proceeds from pillow sales support health and education in impoverished communities in Africa. She will also have baskets that were designed and handwoven with love by women of the ASIGE Project in Bolgatanga Ghana. Purchase of a basket gives these women the ability to support their families and the hope for a better future. Proceeds also support the purchase of essential medications and supplies for healthcare mission trips to remote villages in Ghana through A.S.A.P. Also for sale will be black soap and shea butter. Please stop by the studio and help support this wonderful cause.

You can also check out the new quilt fabrics that recently arrived at the studio. All fabrics are regularly just $7.50 per yard.  And I will be taking signups for fall classes and the 2018 Annual Get-Away Weekend at Beaver Hollow scheduled for  April 26 – 29. The weekend is starting to fill up already, so get your deposit down if you want to join us.

September’s First Friday will be on Friday, September 1, from 6 – 9 p.m. As always, First Friday is a wonderful evening to wonder around the Hungerford building and check out all of the varied artists’ studios. There are four floors with over 100 different studios featuring painters, photographers, sculptors, ceramics artists, potters, glass artists, jewelry artists, fiber artists and more. It’s a great place to find a one-of-a-kind gift while supporting local artists and locally-owned businesses.
