Wednesday evenings June 14 on. Quilting "welcome blankets." From Cindy Pardo, a teacher of quilting. In an attempt to hold back the Forces of Darkness, I invite anyone who can knit, crochet or quilt to join us at First Unitarian Church, 5650 S. Woodlawn, on Wednesday evenings, from 7-9 (we'll skip July 5th) to work on making Welcome Blankets. The idea, dreamed up by the same crafts women who created the Pussy Hat Project, is to create 40" x 40" Welcome Blankets which will be displayed at our own Smart Museum beginning in mid July. What the exhibit will show is what 2,000 miles of yarn and fiber looks like, in place of a 2,000 mile wall. When the exhibit is over the blankets will be sent to refugee and immigrant groups for distribution to newcomers to our country who, despite the current lunacy, still want to come here. The blankets will feature a tag that not only tells how to care for them, but has a space for the maker to tell their own family's immigration story. You can find further information about the project at www.welcomeblanket.org, where there is also a basic knitting pattern. You don't have to use their pattern, and knitted, crocheted and quilted blankets are welcome. I am able to give some crafting help, if needed, and I will have some limited yarn and needles to help you get started, but you may want to choose your own. We'll be meeting for six weeks, and I'll bring the first round of munchies! I love the positive aspects of this initiative and hope some of you will join us!

Mission of the Hyde Park-Kenwood Community Conference

The purpose of the Conference is to attend to the civic needs of the community; work toward an attractive, secure, diverse, and caring community; and to promote participation of residents, businesses, institutions, and organizations in programs and activities that advance the interests and concerns of the community. It serves the community as a watchdog, independent voice, and clearing house in the community's ongoing conversation and decisions about those matters which affect and define community life.
