July 20: Accessibility Project Parish Informational Meeting
The Accessibility Project Team and Fundraising Team invite all community members to an informal informational meeting about the grand building project on Sunday, July 20. The meeting will be held during coffee hour in Archangel Michael Hall (approximate start time: 11:45 am). Paul Purman and Frank Cerra will lead the meeting, focusing on construction progress, highlights and the outlook for the near future, project expenses to date, fundraising goals, and our progress toward them. We'll keep the presentations fairly brief and allow as much time as possible for your questions. As always, please feel free to contact members of parish council, clergy, project and fundraising teams with any questions or concerns - if you're not sure who those people are,
Photo Retrospective: A Buliding Eager for the Return of Its People
We were back in our church building for the Divine Liturgy on Sunday. Click here for Emmy's photos this week for a reminder of all that has happened since work began Bright Monday.
Learn to Sew with Abby and Judy!
To raise funds for the Holy Trinity accessibility project, Abby Hansen and Judy Purman are teaming up to offer a sewing primer for anyone who would like to learn some essential sewing skills. We are hosting a hand-sewing methods class at Archangel Michael Hall on Sunday, July 20, from 1:30 to 5 pm, and a machine-sewing class two weeks later, on August 3, also 1:30 to 5 pm. Get familiarized with the materials and machinery, learn some great stitches and their applications, and complete a simple project with us. Leave with lots of good info and ideas for your own garment maintenance and projects at home.
Anyone with fingers may attend the hand-sewing class; however, you'll need to supply a sewing machine if you'd like to come to the machine-sewing class. Choose one class or come to both, and bring a friend if you like. Suggested donation for the building project is $45; Maximum class size: 12. Materials will be provided (you can take some home too).
Abby has been sewing professionally for seven years, working in costume shops and alterations shops, doing contract garment production from home, and taking on custom projects such as church vestments and bridal gowns in her spare time. Judy is a long-time quilter and sewer and sells her own custom quilts on the side.
To RSVP or write with any questions or wishes, please to e-mail Abby.
