SEWING - Our first MCC sale sewing and project night will be sewing school kit bags on Feb 6. We are planning a series, which will continue until the sale. Please talk to Tammy R., Kathy B., or me if you're interested in participating or have project ideas.


WOODWORKING - I am also trying a very informal "shop time" several Thursday afternoons/evenings between now and the sale (first one 1/24... check the calendar on the webpage). The shop will be warm... feel free to stop by to work on projects (MCC or otherwise), chat, and/or have a cup of coffee 3-8p.
