The March meeting of the Melrose Arts & Crafts Society will be held at the First Baptist Church (561 Main St. in Melrose) on Monday, March 28 at 9 a.m. This month Gina Stuffle will be instructing members on how to make a spring or Easter basket. She will also be supplying all the materials needed to those who have signed up the previous month and paid a small fee.
Earlier this month, Pat Boyer, a longtime member of Melrose Arts & Crafts, delivered to Oga Farham, of Saugus, dozens of teddy bears, hats, scarves and blankets made by herself and other members of the society for almost immediate delivery to Ukraine. Because of the great need of such items, members will be stuffing teddy bears and again donating homemade items at the March meeting that will be sent in the next shipment to the brave and beleaguered people of Ukraine. Later on a business meeting will be held, followed by tea and coffee.
If you are interested in learning a new craft, improving an old one or just meeting other crafters, please contact Dorothy Iudice at 781-662-2099 if you have any questions. We have members from 11 surrounding communities and are always happy to welcome new members.
Our next monthly meeting will be Monday, April 25.
