New Location for Crafty Weasels Sew Days

There is some great news for the Crafty Weasels.

 We put out the intent at the beginning of the year to find the right location that we can meet monthly in a large room. Well several started helping (thanks Megan) and putting things into the right direction. Lisa Melton Cook called me and told me that she would find a place for us and not stop until she did. Well, after lots of phone calls, and not getting the response we needed, she had great news, and we had a place to look over and see if it worked for us.

 

 Long story shorter – it is Chambrel at Roswell. The facility is beautiful, elegant, and they are excited to have us there. It is truly all that we were envisioning.

January 2014 Sew Day

I wanted to thank everyone for coming and making this event happen at the beginning of this year.  Jewelz came over Friday night to help me get everything organized which was a very good thing.  Meliah did a great job as usual with the Chicken Totilla Soup, and the chicken salad.  She made a wonderful veggie soup too.  Everyone brought wonderful things to share, and we definitely enjoyed it all.
This past week Karen met up with Dawn and was giving wonderful bedding that Dawn had made.  As usual, she totally over did herself.
Here is the count:
8 – FN Sets
4 - Regular Sets
4 – Reg Hammies
2 – Reg Sleepsacks
Karen was busy this last week too.  She knew the shelter needed to have some things that would take extra time to cut, and put together, so she did it for us.  It included:
8 – FN Tray Covers (one regular, one with the hole cut out)
12 – Ramp Covers
As a group, we got off to a slower start because we completed almost everything we had last month, and didn’t have enough things left in progress, so we don’t have a large amount this month, but we do have things in progress which means we can make up for it each month from now on.  Here is our total:
4 – FN Sets
2 – FH Hammies
1 – FN Sleepsack
3 – Regular Sets
2 – Regular Sleepsacks
Attendees:
Jewelz
Karen

Thanks again to everyone for coming and continuing to help this group with the mission to help shelters with bedding.

December 2013 Sew Day

It was a small group, but we did kick it in gear and get a nice pile of stuff going for the shelters. Karen made a really great tasting ham, and her home was decorated beautifully for Christmas.  Wish I had taken a picture of her special Christmas Tee – it had a Ferret Playpen around it to protect it.  It was too cute!

Had a wonderful time at your new place … great setup, and lots of fun playing with your furkids.  It was nice having the Thanksgiving theme for the lunch menu, and for once no dessert … but didn’t miss it until I started writing this message.  Give Matt and extra hug for being so very helpful with getting everything into the car. He is a keeper!  :-)

NOTE: This was MY first sew day. I’ve been working on the website for the Weasels since early in the year, but had prior plans or work conflicting during every sew day. It was truly a lot of work, but it was amazing to meet so many new people with such huge generous hearts willing to put in so much effort to help out the shelters and loving fuzzy babies in them.
Crafty Weasels, you are incredible! – love, Nikki

16 PennyButton Hammies
8 Comfort Slings
I separate things into bags on Sunday, and we have lots of hammies and sleepsacks ready for the top and bottom sewing, so I know we are on our way to a very busy time.
Sew day will be at our home next time.  The date will be the first Saturday or the month, making it October 5th.  Please take note this is the “first Saturday.”
Thanks to everyone for coming and making it a fun sew day!
