Molly Day and Jamie Whitaker (cc'd) will be your volunteer leaders for the day -- find them at the check in table to get signed in and oriented!
If you’re receiving this email, it means that you have signed up as a non-sewing machine blanket-maker. This means that you’ll be helping out with fabric cutting, pinning, tying off, and hand-sewing Binky Patrol labels to the completed blankets. Please bring a pair of scissors (labeled, so you can keep track of them!).
What to Bring:
You will likely be sitting at cafeteria tables – i.e. bench seats -- or kneeling on the floor to create blanket "sandwiches". You are welcome to bring a backrest (such as the Crazy Creek chairs that you can place on a bench), a pillow, or a gardening knee rest to make the experience more comfortable.
Please sign in upon arrival (you’ll see a sign-in sheet specifically for the Helpers group) and turn in waiver forms at that point.
We’ll get things started at a lunch/snack to eat during the shift, as the shift falls over the lunch hour and you'll need sustenance to keep those machines going! and work work work until , with the last half hour devoted to getting the blankets bagged and the place all cleaned up. Bring
Be prepared for a fun and somewhat busy/chaotic environment. We appreciate in advance your flexibility and willingness to work where you are needed and your understanding that there might be some downtime as the sewers work to keep up with your help!
The more sewing machines we have going, the more people we can involve, and the more blankets we’ll make.
SEWERS: What to Bring:
· Your sewing machine
· Extra thread and needles, a ripper, pincushion, preloaded bobbins, etc.
· An extension cord (labeled with your name)
· A powerstrip, if you can (labeled with your name)
You may be sitting in real chairs or you may be at cafeteria tables – i.e. bench seats. You are welcome to bring a backrest (such as the Crazy Creek chairs that you can place on a bench) or pillow to make the experience more comfortable.
