QU’APPELLE HOUSE CRAFT SALE. Qu’Appelle House Auxiliary and staff are collecting items for a craft sale for the residents and we are looking for donations. Please contact Judy, Brenda or Lynda for more information and to have your items picked up. (We will arrange a single drop-off at Qu’Appelle House to minimize contact.) Deadline is April 28. Thank you in advance. All proceeds go to Qu’Appelle House Auxiliary to help fund special events for residents, like bi monthly birthday parties, a summer picnic, a tart tea, a strawberry social, Christmas stockings, etc.
All crafts welcome, but if you’re stumped, things that go over really well are jewelry (best seller), walker bags, any sort of decor for the residents’ rooms, notepads, cards, bookmarks, artwork, summer hats, etc. If anyone isn’t particularly crafty but wants to purchase word find books, they go over really well too. We aren’t accepting homemade food right now due to the covid 19 pandemic.
MEND WITH CARE. Any clothing in need of repair? We are a small group of menders offering to do some basic or creative mending for all your worn wear! All proceeds will go directly to the Refugee Fund. We welcome ripped seams, unraveled knitwear, holes to patch, wool to darn, loose or missing buttons.
