What was I Supposed to Remember?

Petey the Pup: Is dis a test? Dang! I knew we shoulda jus stayed home an’ done chores like we was s’posed ta.

This is not a test. It’s a simple reminder that the Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser is coming up THIS Saturday (March 23) from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the current library building (210 N Main Ave).

Gee, thanks for the scoop! Once this hits the wires with MY byline, maybe the boss will take me off of the Lonely Hearts column.

Friends are welcome to come to our Preview Sale from 9:00 to 10:00 am. Not a Friend? No worries; join at the door!

Really?

Yes, really!

The fundraiser is all about selling fabric that has been sorted, measured and tagged (at MUST-GO prices). All you need to do is come and BUY, BUY, BUY! For more information about the sale, click here.

Questions? Email or call Donna (360-887-2700).

Hope to see you there!

Oh, yes! I want to reprise my role as court jester (seen here in my favorite college photo). Alas, this costume no longer fits my middle-aged rolls. I know the Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser will have just what I need.

Sew Much Excitement​. Again. For Real This Time.

This is no way to drive to the Fabulous Friends Fabric Fundraiser. That’s why we chose to cancel the event in February. We’re hoping that you won’t need much more gear than your wallet for the rescheduled event on MARCH 23.

Okay. Remind me. I can’t keep all the details in my nicely permed head.

If you’re into sewing, quilting, or making:

costumes, set designs, small home décor projects, totes, handbags, or crafty projects, don’t miss this fundraiser!

Community members have donated piles of all kinds of fabric. Some with multiple yardages. Lots are one yard or less. VERY reasonable prices!

When? Saturday, March 23, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm (Members of the Friends of Ridgefield Library are invited to the special Preview Sale from 9:00 to 10:00 am prior to the public event that Saturday.) 

Gee. I wish I was I Friend. I’d love to get in early.

No worries! Just join at the door. The Friends will  welcome you!

Where? The Ridgefield Community Center (small room)

Questions? Email or call Donna (360-887-2700).

We’ve tried to make shopping as easy as possible for you.
You’re welcome!

We’ve done the sorting, labeling and pricing.

We lined up some of our best, most dedicated volunteers.

all chemical and a yard wide

We measured, priced, and labeled every piece of fab—whoa! Wait just a minute! Iix nay on the Ihemicals cay! We know nothing about the chemical composition of the fabrics. Do we look like microscale metamaterials physicists? I rest my case! What was my case, anyway?

Now, all that’s left is for you quilters, sewers (um, er, people who sew), crafters, and costume or set designers to come down to the Ridgefield Community Center on Saturday, March 23 between 10 am and 2 pm. You can enter for free, but please don’t leave empty-handed!

Really? You’re gonna let me go to the Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser knowing what a hound I am for a good deal? Howl about that!

This fundraising event is sponsored by the Friends of Ridgefield Community Library. All proceeds go to support current and future programs and to help build our new library.

no tricks no sleeves

Friends don’t keep any money for themselves. Honest. There won’t be any pulling of tricks from our sleeves; we are clearly a sleeveless kind of group!

As always, thank you for supporting YOUR public library!

Saturday? February 9? Hmmm . . .

old woman thinking

Hmmm. This Saturday . . . It’s not Valentine’s Day or Earth Day. I don’t think I scheduled my semi-annual hair cut, manicure, and pedicure for that day. But I know it’s something I want to attend. Oh, yes! I know! It’s that Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser the Friendly folks who support the library are holding. Yup. I plan on whipping me up a new vest. Had this one since the late 1930s.

On the off, off, off chance that you forgot, SATURDAY, February 9 from 10 to 2 in the small room of the Ridgefield Community Center, the Friends of Ridgefield Community Library are holding a SUPER DUPER fabric fundraiser.

My, my my Little Chickadee!

Now that's both artsy and pretty crafty if you ask me!

Are you looking for something to do to on a rainy, gray Saturday?

Well, on Saturday, November 5th, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Community Center in Ridgefield, come in out of the rain and attend the Chickadee Arts & Craft Bazaar sponsored by the Ridgefield Arts Association.

You’ll find your favorite Friends (yes, that means us—Friends of the Library) there.

We’ll have:

  • Arts, crafts, and cook books for sale! Cheap (or should we say Chirp?)
  • Baked goods galore! Peck and choose to your heart’s content!
  • Crafty hand made gifts sewn or quilted by one of our Friends that will make greats gifts (unless you want to feather your own nest with them)!

There will be all kinds of other artsy and crafty folks there, too.

So don’t miss your chance to shop early for the holidays or just, you know, get out of the rain!

Gee, some people just love the rain. But that's no excuse not to stop by and check out the Chickadee Craft Bizarre.
