What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
I need to move boxes and bags of games, glasses, sewing stuff, and my furniture back after the carpet is installed. If you will help me move my bags, boxes, and furniture, I will work twice as long for you: house cleaning, car wash, clothes-on massage, or yard work.
Please let me know what time you want to arrive. This will help me plan and to know that you are serious.

You can help the planet by keeping some things out of the land fill when you bring them to my sewing clinic for repair. I will repair them for free.
I have repaired dresses, pants, blousses, coats, blankets, pillow cases, a sports bag, reusable shopping bags, a lamp shade, and a pair of slippers. I have created a lamp shade and an apron without a pattern. I instructed a woman on how to make a square dance skirt without a pattern (her friends were amazed) and one on how to sew a cover for an outdoor piece of furniture. The woman who made the cover insisted upon buying the amount of material that she had computed, but with my suggestion, she had so much left over that she made a cover for the outdoor grill.
I will help you repair your clothing, teach you to use your own sewing machine, or repair your clothing for you depending upon your skill level. Some people left things for me to repair and picked them up the next month.
During one clinic, we repaired two pair of pants, one pair of shorts, one blouse, one sports bag, and one reusable shopping bag. I taught two men to hem their own pants. I did much of the sewing, but they measured, cut, and ironed.
One woman lost 40 pounds and wasn't ready to invest in new clothes, so we altered her wardrobe. Another woman brought more than a dozen pairs of pants to be shortened. We shortened four or five each month until they were all done.
Just bring what needs to be repaired and any parts or pieces (button, replacement zipper, decal to be sewn on, etc.).
Bring everything that you want sewn and I will tell you what can be done. If we can't finish this time, we can do more next time.
I hope to see you soon!
We play board games afterwards. We stop at 5 PM for a vegan potluck.
Questions? Call me at[masked] (Land line - No text messages).
Let's have some fun!!
Join our Vegan Potluck at 5:00 PM, If you don't know what to bring, bring fruit or a salad or just call me for suggestions (no honey, eggs, dairy, mayonnaise, gelatin, or meat). If you want to share your snack with the hostess, keep in mind that I have several food allergies (wheat, cinnamon, green bell peppers, water cress, parsley, and chocolate) that might prevent me from tasting your tasty treats. Raw fruits and veggies are great!
Or join us for games at about 6:00PM or 6:30 PM.
We usually play games like "Tsuro," "Ticket to Ride," "Splendor," "Transamerica," "Cable Car," "6 Cubes," "Take a Chance," "Blokus," and games brought by you and others. Please bring your favorite game to share with us.
I enjoy teaching people how to play games, come and learn a new game or play an old favorite. I prefer games that are easy to learn, end for everyone at the same time (unlike Monopoly), and last 30 to 60 minutes. I also have a few that last 15 to 20 minutes. You can bring your own game. Longer games are less popular, but we did have a three-hour game of "Power Grid" played at the other table while I played "Ticket to Ride" and three other games. (Warning, "Cards Against Humanity" will not be played here.)
5:00 PM - Potluck
6:00 or 6:30 PM - Board games
10:00 PM - Time to go home, unless we're having too much fun!
I post this event with another meetup group, so I usually get three to five people attending.
(408)[masked]. If you are reading this after noon on the day of the Meetup, call to let me know that you want to come and what time you think you will arrive.
My place is across the street from an empty lot. Your GPS will say that I live in the empty lot.
KEEP EACH CELL ALIVE AND WELL especially in today's world. We will have a healthy potluck. There is more that can be done for our cells than using good nutrition.
See the newest cutting-edge technology. We will approach this from multiple angles.
In addition to some short sessions with electromagnetic frequencies and sound, we will have some videos, a live presentation, sharing and discussion.
IT WILL BE A FUN-FILLED EXPLORATION DAY.
Please contribute to the potluck an organic raw food dish or pay $5 if you can’t come up with something.
Doors will open at 3:30 for early sessions. Please arrive by 4:30 PM for the event.
