CROCHET A HOLIDAY WINTER SET:
A Gift or For You! with Alexis Leonard
Wednesday, September 12, 26, October 10, 24,
November 14, 28
Alexis is a kindergarten teacher who is also passionate about crochet.  She has her own crochet business, Simply in Stitches, where she sells cute little animals, gift baskets to keychains and other requests.  She has thought of a great crochet project for adults and children, 4th grade and older, and for all abilities, especially beginners because Alexis is a great instructor!  The first project will be a scarf, then hat and finger-less gloves when participants are ready.  The classes are free but participants need to buy their own supplies.  This is what is needed for the scarf, the first project:

  • 2 skeins of “Red Heart Super Saver” of any color. Each skein of yarn is about $4, available at Wal-Mart, Joann Fabric and Michaels

  • Crochet Hook “I or 5.5mm” (that letter is the letter I as in iguana). The hook costs $2-3

  • Yarn Needle (the metal is the most durable, but plastic will work). The Needle costs $2-3.

  • Scissors

Suffield Senior Center
For the past three years, this group has met in the springtime to participate in Great Decisions, a discussion program on world affairs, produced by the Foreign Policy Association.  Once a year, is too long to wait, so the group is creating its own platform to discuss domestic issues.  A few articles will be sent out to prepare for the meeting.  The September discussion is on the U.S. Debt which will be led by Mary Jean Nelson.

LECTURE
Leonard Bernstein, An American
Treasure with Jeffrey Engel, music historian
Saturday, September 22 at 2pm
Held at the Suffield Senior Center
Bernstein was the most gifted, famous, popular and successful musician produced by America. He was a virtuoso pianist and conductor, a composer of music ranging from Broadway musicals to the classical repertory, an educator, a lecturer, an author and a TV personality. There was very little he couldn’t do extremely well.  2018 is the centenary of Bernstein’s birth and it is a good time to celebrate this American treasure.
