About the teacher, Aimee Formo

Aimee has been sewing since she barely had any hand-eye coordination. She learned to sew from the same grandmother whose recipes involved measurements like, “about a handful or two” and “just keep pouring it in until it looks right,” and while she’s successfully taught many beginner sewing courses formally and informally, she’s never taken formal stitchery classes herself. When she stitches, she usually foregoes anything that adds time to the process, including pinning (ironing, however, is never optional). Aimee’s happy place is making small stuff, for dolls, babies, and children. If you like to cook without a cookbook, you’ll love to sew without too many rules, too.

Do you realize about 80% of everything you do each day is driven by your personal HABITS? Another expert says that 95% of what you do, or fail to do, is determined by your habits. And, the scary part – you probably don’t even think about any of them! That’s one of the reasons they are called habits. If your life isn’t everything you want it to be; if you want change in your life – something different, bigger, something more exciting – whatever, you have to take a look at your habits. With the insight that your habits can be WHAT YOU CHOOSE them to be, you can release the power of habit to live the authentic and happy life you desire. It’s all up to you. Invest 90 minutes to discovering what drives the bulk of your daily activity is, how it is affecting your health, happiness, wealth and success, and what you can do to grow it or improve it. *This class is accepting pantry goods as barter items that will be donated to Partners in Housing.

A 72 Hour Emergency Kit (or also called A Go Bag, Get Out Of Dodge Bag, Bug Out Bag(B.O.B.) etc., contains items to help support an individual as far as basic comfort, sanitation, and consumption needs for up to 3 days. It is mainly used for evacuating an area from a disaster or place of danger to get to a place of safety, but can be used for many other reasons. It is kind of like an insurance policy, you hope you never need to use it, but if you have one it helps make the situation a little less stressful. Many items that go in a bug out bag you probably already own. This class will help you learn simple and inexpensive steps to put your own basic "non-advanced" emergency kit together. It is recommended that everyone in the family should have their own personal grab & go emergency kit. If you don't have one put together, then this class would be a good place to start. We will have some information on some items to have ready for cats and dogs.

About the teacher, Mary Louzon

In September 2002, Mary Louzon and her family had to rebuild their home after a tornado. Mary wasn't at home during the tornado, but after going through that experience, it made her want to learn at least the basics on how to try and be a little better prepared if another emergency situation occurs. She has taken the CERT(Community Emergency Response Team)Training offered by Marion County and a number of courses on basic emergency preparedness. It is recommended that everyone have their own emergency kit. Mary is passionate about sharing this information so others can be a little more prepared to help take care of themselves and their families.

You'll need two fat quarters -or- two 1/3 yard cuts. Pick coordinating fabrics as the lining of the bag will show, 1 spool of coordinating thread, 2 yards of coordinating string.
