There will be a special Sew Day on August 22nd from 9-4 at the Beechwood Lodge to make book pockets for chair backs. Here’s the scoop if you’d like to help out… Did you see the recent news about Holland Language Academy having to move buildings? https://whtc.com/news/articles/2019/aug/08/mold-spores-close-holland-language-academy-for-2019-20-school-year/925920/ The teachers had to leave everything in the old building and are moving for a whole year!! They need book pockets for the back of the chairs in the classrooms. So far there are 4 teachers that want them – ~ 26 students per class. And there could be more! Stretchy fabric will be provided. Here’s a picture of what they look like. https://heathershandmadelife.com/2017/09/diy-chair-pockets-for-classrooms.html
