The fourth annual “Placemat Palooza”, benefitting clients of Meals on Wheels, is scheduled to take place Saturday, November 4.
“We are inviting sewists of all experience levels to come help us in making placemats and walker bags for area Seniors who are clients of Meals on Wheels” says Tawni Young, owner of InterQuilten.
The event will take place at the Traverse City Senior Center, 801 E. Front Street, Traverse City. Doors will open at 9:30 am. Everyone is welcome to participate in a pot luck lunch.
Jodi Simmer, Program Coordinator for Meals on Wheels, says “Many of our seniors are alone during the holidays. These lovely, handmade placemats bring smiles to lonely faces and are appreciated and enjoyed long after the holidays have passed.”
Fabric, patterns, pressing equipment, and construction assistance will be provided. Participants are asked to bring their sewing machine and basic tools. There will also be an extra sewing machine available. Non sewists are welcome to come help with cutting and pressing.
