District Winners Compete In Fashion Revue
By Pamela Redwine
Last week four MHV members attended Missis-sippi Homemaker State Council held at Mississippi State University. During the three-day conference, they participated in the business of the organization by attending the general sessions, workshops and the awards luncheon and fashion revue. Yalobusha County had two district winners to participate in the Fashion Revue, Lisa Dudley and Jo Davis. They also had 11 entries in the Cultural Arts Contest and came away with three red ribbons, eight blue ribbons and a Best of Show ribbon.
Our Sewing 101 for youth, ages 8-18, is scheduled Tuesday, June 2, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. During this class youth will learn sewing basics including identifying parts of a sewing machine, sewing tools, how to sew straight line and curved line and other lessons. They will end with a final project, which they will get to take home. Lunch and snacks will be served.
The cost is $10 per participant and is limited to five participants. Please contact Pamela at 675-2730 by May 29th to register your child and pay fee.
The Sewing for Service group will meet on Monday, June 1, at 10 a.m. We are currently working on tote bags for Blair Batson Children’s Hospital. You will need one yard of child friendly fabric and matching thread – bring your own or use ours – we have all the supplies you will need, we just need your skills to help us complete these service projects.
Our crochet group will meet on Thursday, June 4, at 10 a.m. This is a laid back group that enjoys sharing patterns and helping each other learn to do new projects – from baby blankets, to shawls and from beanies to scarfs – they are all trying new and different things. Yearly dues are $6 and you will need to bring your choice of yarn and hook.
Don’t forget, our Healthy You Exercise classes are free and meet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 until 9:45 a.m. Make sure that you wear cool, comfortable clothes, good walking shoes and bring some water to drink.
