Classes help shelter in Minnesota

Two weeks ago I taught a class at Gallery of Dreams in Alexandria, MN on shawl construction.  The “fee” for the class was a commitment to knit a shawl for Someplace Safe, the local shelter for victims of domestic violence.  There were seven women in the class, which was scheduled to go for 1 1/2 hours, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  At 7:15 the youngest had to leave because she had a child to go home to.  The rest of us continued talking about shawls.  It was close to 9:00 p.m. when I finally got into my car to leave.  We had a really good time.

Next week Saturday the Evansville Arts Center is hosting a “Fiber Day.”  I don’t know who else will be attending, but I will be there with the shawls I have, with information on The Sheila’s Shawls and Paul’s Scarves Program, and with information on Someplace Safe.  The event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
