Let me introduce you to Hello XOXO which is described on their website as “an all-inclusive nest where ladies of all ages come together to enrich themselves and their community through philanthropy, mentoring, book and supper clubs, deep conversations, all while exploring their inner artisan.” It is located in downtown Sacramento and will hopefully become a common meeting place for crafty women.
Today, a small group of ladies gathered to make fabric mice for Happy Tails, a local pet sanctuary. We sewed, talked and enjoyed the afternoon. Each little mouse was given eyes, ears and maybe whiskers and a nose if we decided to be ambitious. Then they were stitched together and stuffed with cotton and catnip. The sweet kitties at Happy Tails deserve nice toys too. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I hope to attend more events here in the future. If you’re in the Sacramento area, maybe you will join me?
