HANDCRAFT COMMITTEE UPDATE

Thank you! Thank you!

BB&B is fast approaching.  Our members have been handing in fantastic items for the sale.

At this time of year the big question is what do make.  Remember “Make what you like. Like what you make and have fun doing it”.  What sells are bright, modern colours and unique items.

Customers have been asking for project bags, kid’s items like alphabet letters in pouches, travel change pads, socks, warm mittens, decorated hats, jewelry and everything else under the sun. Christmas is always popular.   For home décor sets of items seem to be popular.

If you have an idea for something new that you think would sell; make up to six of the item and put them in the sale.  It might be “the item” of the year and we will make more for next year.

If you need some supplies or have any questions please email handcrafts@ujamaagrandmas.com and the fabric custodian will check to see if what you need is available.

PLEASE tag items that you hand in for the sale.  Instructions and suggestions are explained more fully on the handcraft page. Every item needs to have a tag and product custodians do not have time to attach hundreds of tags during the pricing meetings.

Final drop off for items for the sale will be the end of September.

Dates and locations will be in the September e news.

Without the support of our makers the sale would not be as successful.  THANK YOU!
