A demonstration and explanation, “Designing and Making a Christmas Wreath,” will be the program at the Nov. 8 meeting of Mountain View Homemakers.
Rick Artis, owner of The Wildflower in Pagosa, will show members the steps involved in making a wreath and discuss other possibilities for grapevine wreaths that can be used inside or out during the Christmas season.
Members and guests can arrive at about 11:30 a.m. at the Extension Building to visit and get lunch set up. Lunch will begin promptly at noon and the program will begin just after 12:30.
Any woman interested in finding out more about the organization is welcome to attend and there is no need to bring food.
Following Artis’ program there will be a discussion of the bazaar. On Nov. 3, Mountain View Homemakers is producing the Holiday Bazaar that includes 63 booths showcasing 75 artists, a huge silent auction of 40 wonderful gift baskets and other treasures, breakfast and lunch by Pagosa Springs Youth Center at the “Youth Diner,” and a great bake sale benefiting the Ruby Sisson Memorial Library. All income from the bazaar will support local non-profits. The Morning Rotary, another group known for community assistance, is providing setup and takedown for the event.
The Homemakers organization is a monthly gathering of women interested in making the lives of their families and their community more livable. All meetings include lunch and either enlightening speakers or a hands-on community project. One auction fund-raiser every summer results in contributions to eight or nine local non-profit efforts. There are no dues or membership requirements and every interested woman will be welcomed.
