Attention All: There is a sewing project in the making for which we need a little help from whomever reads this announcement. What we need is a small rectangular piece of fabric that measures around 3-4 inches x 8-10 inches. It can be any color and any type from wool to cotton.  Put it in an envelope with your name on the envelope and place it in the church mailbox of Charlene Neer. Hopefully the project will be completed by Christmas! Thanks for your help!
