Thank you so much for the nice greetings!!
It’s been hot here lately, supposed to have bad storms but didn’t even rain here last night. Today was supposed to be mostly sunny….it’s raining!!! That’s Michigan!
I haven’t been to the Detroit area in years. My Aunt & Uncle used to live there when I was young, but then moved up north. Between Wyoming, Kentwood, Grandville and Grand Rapids….all in circle ,there are lots of fabric, craft and yarn stores so I get everything I need. I love to just check out new places and old places for new things.
The Red Hat Society is a ‘dis’organization for women over 50. Actually, women under 50 can join, also. You can find out a lot on wwwRedHatSociety.com. We are groups of women that get together whenever we want to do whatever we want…..wear purple clothes and red hats…..decorated with whatever you like. In birthday months, we can wear red clothes and purple hats. If someone under 50 wants to join, they wear lavender clothes and a pink hat. When they turn 50, you can have a ‘Reduation’ and present them with a Red hat.
The Society was started in 1999 by Sue Ellen Cooper when she bought her friend a red hat for her birthday just to cheer her up. They formed a club of sorts, and it’s grown to encompass the whole world!! There are chapters in Australia, Thailand, Japan….the whole world over. 13 of us just went to Craigs Cruisers last week. It’s geared toward family and kids, but WHO SAYS KIDS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN HAVE FUN?!?!?! Right??
I love my Wyoming Red Head sisters and wouldn’t trade them for the world. Some work, some are retired, some married, widowed, some single. We have so much fun, whether it’s getting together for tea, a road trip to a dinner theater, a plan in town, a show and lunch, anything that will get us together. It’s a time to celebrate a woman having raised her family, worked to support them and her husband, done all the serious things she’s had to do. Now it’s time to celebrate HER! Time for US to just have fun.
So now I’m retired, knitting what and when I want. I have a new sewing machine, now I’ll be looking for new material for new projects. I’m just so glad I found this group of awesome folks to share that with.
Thanks again for the sweet welcome, I look forward to sharing my sewing experiences with you all.
