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.

Um . . . Excuse me. It’s called the Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser. We crafty kittens feel quite strongly about our cutsie names.

If you’re into making:
# gifts
# costumes
# set designs
# small home décor projects
# totes
# handbags
# crafty projects

Don’t miss this fundraiser!

Want some ideas for what you could do with this fabric besides make clothing?

Community members have been donating all manner of home décor, quilting and other fabric (notions, too!). Some with multiple yardages. Most one yard or less. VERY reasonable prices!

When? Saturday, February 9, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

Members of the Ridgefield Friends can see the fabric and buy what they want EARLY—Friday, Feb. 8, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm! (Small room of the Community Center)

That’s very nice, Friends! A nice, orderly line. no pushing or shoving among crafters that often happens when the words “sale” and “fabric” appear together. Come to see what we have and buy what you like before anyone else has the chance to scoop it up!

Where? The Ridgefield Community Center (small room)

All proceeds go toward supporting the Ridgefield Public Library.

Hey, I gotta question. When will my Person come outta that sewing/crafting room? I been one Lonesome Love Muffin since that BIG Fine & Dandy Fabric Fundraiser! Alls I hear are sounds like scissors slicin’ and a sewin’ machine, well, uh, sewin’. To top it off, I’m missin’ playtime. You know what dat means, right? I’m puttin’ on extra weight just before swimsuit season.

As always, thank you for supporting YOUR public library!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All that glitters…and more! We need your treasures for our Golden Elephant Sale.

If you find this little pachyderm irresistible, then we've got something to talk about!

On Saturday, December 3rd–don’t laugh, it’ll be here before you know it!– the Friends will be holding a Golden Elephant Sale as part of Ridgefield’s Hometown celebration.

What’s a Golden Elephant Sale? It’s a place for you to buy high-end, gently used or brand new items at ridiculously reasonable prices. These items are perfect for your holiday gift-giving lists: high-class goods that are oh-so-kind to your budget. Think of this sale as an up-scale White Elephant sale.

But before we can have a Big Top Ballyhoo of a Golden Elephant Sale, we need you to donate YOUR new or upscale, gently used items. And we need them NOW! 

We’re looking for new or like-new gadgets, jewelry, collectibles, fashion accessories, home decor items, glassware, etc. NO clothing, please! Think of the kind of items you would likely see in a nice vintage or recycled items shop. Or items that could be regifted without any hullaballoo.  

What? That catnip mouse you gave me was formerly Mr. Whisters' discarded toy? The never of some humans...

toy? The nerve of some humans…

To donate items call Ilia (360-727-3387) or  Vicki (513-335-0955) NOW.

Then, on December 3rd, come to the Ridgefield Community Center with your holiday shopping list in hand and get ready to buy, buy, buy and save, save, save!

Everything you do (donating items and buying gifts at the sale) will benefit the Ridgefield Community Library!

Thank you so much for your support!

The Friends of the Ridgefield Library are SO excited about how supportive everyone in the community is when it comes to helping to build a new, bigger, better library!

The Friends of Ridgefield Library applaud this community. You are so supportive of YOUR public library!
