Sip and (not) Sew for My Very Own Blanket
Mon, May 15, 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
May is National Foster Care Awareness Month!
Be a part of My Very Own Blanket's effort to make 1,000 blankets this month to give to children in the foster care system. Let's see how many we can make!
Join Columbus Gives Back at Chocolate Cafe in Grandview to make blankets to be delivered by My Very Own Blanket to children in foster care. This event is for novices and pros alike, as we will be making and assembling no-sew blankets just like these: No Sew Blanket Instructions.
Please consider purchasing the fleece at the event for $10, since a portion of each fleece benefits My Very Own Blanket. Volunteers have the option to pay $10 per blanket they want to make (and I'll bring the fleece!) or to BYOF (bring your own fleece - 2 yards). Come and enjoy a chocolate drink or treat, meet other volunteers, and get in touch with your crafty side!
Where: Chocolate Cafe, 1855 Northwest Blvd, Columbus OH 43212
When: Monday, May 15th from 6-8 PM
Cost: $10 per fleece from event leader or bring 2 yards of fleece (bring your own scissors is optional!)
Event Leaders: Amanda at email@example.com and Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org
