Movie Night – August 17, 2017

We’ll be viewing Nancy Harvey’s video, “Tapestry Techniques for Clothing Construction”, in which she shows a new tapestry-like technique which is fast and easy and has a supple hand light-weight enough to fashion into clothing. Then she shows techniques for assembling wearables from the new textile art. Viewing time is 101 minutes so we will choose chapters to show, rather than the whole thing. The video is owned by our Library so it will be available to check out afterwards.

Tonight’s program will be held at Redwood City’s Veteran’s Memorial Senior Center, located at 1455 Madison Ave., Redwood City. Our meeting room, the Gold Star Room, will open at 6:45 and the meeting will begin at 7:15, to facilitate operations for our new host, Redwood City Veterans’ Senior Center.

We’ll make reservations for dinner at 5:30 pm at the Redwood Grill. Its address is 356 in Woodside Plaza, Woodside Rd., Redwood City, but you may find it simpler to look for it in Woodside Plaza shopping center, at the corner of Massachusetts Ave and Woodside Rd.  It is only a few blocks from the Senior Center and has plenty of parking.
