December 13, 6 PM (CST)
Our next Virtual Meet-Up is a Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 13th from 6:00-8:00 pm. All members are invited to grab a holiday beverage and tune in for some fun and inspiration. Bring a friend too.
We’ll be crafting ornaments out of studio scraps. We’ll be joined by Chantelle Hogue of Frescolio for a brief look at this thriving local Winnipeg business that specializes in gourmet olive oils and vinegars. We’ll have a draw for a gift card from their store.
And we’re hoping to have a special show and share….You are all invited, in the next few weeks, to use your creative spirit and make some mittens to give away in your community. Everybody needs mittens and you don’t need to know how to knit to make them at home. They can be made from old fleece or wool blankets or coats, felted sweaters… what can you come up with?
Give your handmade mittens away in your community in whatever way makes sense to you. There are many organizations that collect and distribute clothing. In Winnipeg, organizations like Koats for Kids, https://unitedwaywinnipeg.ca/koatsforkids/ donate tons of winter clothing to schools and social groups.
Be sure to take photos of your mittens and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll include them all in the December meet-up’s show and share. And for bonus points, because we’re all over achievers, make a piece of art on the theme of mittens - the shape, or the concept, and share those with us as well.
*Free for TFAM Members, no registration required.
Members: please email your 'Show 'N Share' photos to email@example.com ** a zoom link is emailed to all members before the meet-up.
