It’s July! It’s hot! It’s time for the pool or the beach or vacation!
As you find a way to relax and stay cool, here is a little fun for you.
Twenty-five years ago (that’s 1987!), Patchwork’s July Stitches newsletter included “The Neighborhood Game”, a trip around the neighborhood with Patchwork and friends. It’s interesting to look back at that original game board to see what has changed and what is still the same (tip: there is still the occasional liquefied carrot in the Patchwork fridge and still animals to pet at Alan’s).
Flipping through Patchwork’s old newsletters, I’ve always loved the 1987 Neighborhood Game, so I’ve taken this opportunity to create an updated version.

In other fun news, don’t forget that everyone’s invited to come celebrate Alan’s 90th Birthday! In his honor, we’ll have an ice cream social at Patchwork on Saturday, July 14 from 1 pm-4 pm. Please come to say Happy Birthday. Alan asks that you consider making a donation to Patchwork in his honor in place of giving him a gift.
