Margaret’s Hope Chest has entered it’s 4th year of service to people in need of extra HOPE and comfort in community’s around the country. Occasionally, we host work parties to bring together MHC supporters and work on various quilting projects. This summer we are thrilled to have Amanda Jean author of the popular blog Crazy Mom Quilts join us for our work party. She is a talented and creative quilter. Amanda Jean has created a quilt pattern just for MHC. She will introduce this pattern and instruct attendees on color theory. Based on her teaching, we will be creating several quilt tops on Saturday.
At our Friday evening gathering we will have a work time from 5-7pm with snacks and drinks served. From 7-9pm we will meet Amanda Jean and get to know each other through some fun activities and giveaways. There are rooms available at the bed and breakfast for $30 each person (based on two people per room).
Saturday morning we will meet in EACRC’s fellowship hall at 9am. We will have an open work time from 9-10am. From 10-12 we will be taught by Amanda Jean. Lunch will be served to all participants at 12:30 and we will finish off the day with a work time until 2pm.
There is NO COST for this event--we would like this to be a time of fun, celebration, and learning! Come for one day or both! We aren't picky we just want to see you there! Out-of-towners are welcome! Reserve a spot today by emailing Carin margaretshopechest@yahoo.com.

Wish I could join you, but I'll be at a family reunion then. And in the wrong state!
