Hopefully you have all found a place for the snow to go by now. Digging out when you live on a narrow old street presents the problem of a lack of storage space for the snow. We’re still chipping away at the >5′ bank that is covering the sidewalk in front of our house.
Though this information is outlined in the posted minutes, I wanted to call attention to the details of the February workshop. We will be sewing an azuma bukuro bag using a basic running stitch. Please come to the workshop with a piece of lightweight fabric – cotton is typical. It should measure approximately 13″ x 36″. If your fabric is too sturdy, it will be difficult to knot the closure. I would also avoid loosely woven material. You will also need a sewing needle and several yards of sewing thread (6 or 7 should be more than sufficient). I will provide pins and scissors as well as a handout with detailed instructions. Please let me know if you have any questions.
