We meet twice each month at the Glen Carbon Senior/Community Center. The monthly meeting is not all business: we open the doors at 6:30 for light snacks and socializing, followed by a presentation. The Sew-Ins are primarily a do-your-own-thing get together which can also be utilized for a community service project or a small class.
Meeting—3rd Tuesday at 7 pm
Sew-In—3rd Saturday at 9 am
Glen Carbon Senior/Community Center
157 W Main ST
Glen Carbon, IL 62034
Note: November's meeting will be Nov 13. Every October we meet on the 4th Saturday for the Sew-In.
Aprons trunk show with Kathryn Stulken. Bring in your unusual and vintage aprons.
How's this for unusual? In the 1950's women and girls were frequently depicted in aprons while doing any type of housework. From cookbooks to floor sweeper user manuals. And who can forget the 1950's TV housewives in dresses and aprons with one in particular nearly always wearing a string of pearls?
Our annual auction is held during our November meeting and is open to the public. The auction offers lots of homemade food goodies and hand crafted items, decorative towels, pot holders, aprons, Christmas and other holiday items. This is our only fundraiser, so be thinking about what you would like to make. It should be a fun time, so make something special. No White Elephants!
White elephant comes from a story about the king of Siam, who was said to have given an albino elephant, considered sacred, to a member of the court whom he disliked, knowing that taking care of the animal would exhaust the person's fortune.
