NEXT WEEK: Sock Monkey Fun For A Cause
Next week the fresh art sewing circle will be meeting for another evening of sock monkey making for a good cause. Those of you who are not familiar with fresh art here’s an excerpt from their mission statement:
The mission of fresh art, a non-profit organization, is to provide expanded artistic, personal development, and entrepreneurial opportunities to New York City artists with special needs. We are also dedicated to enhancing public awareness of these artistsâ€™ talents and concerns, their agenciesâ€™ work, and on the use of art as a tool for healing, growth, and positive change.
Not only have I heard from a reader who attended one of these sewing circles that it was a lot of fun, but they have a number of exciting art shows slated for this spring. You can get a sneak peek by clicking here.
Or, if you cannot attend Monday’s get together but want a little sock monkey love they have some wonderful ones for sale online.
I for one really like this guy.
