The following was provided by the Lexington 300th Anniversary Celebration Committee.
Looking for a fun way to help celebrate Lexington's 300th birthday of its incorporation?
If you sew, knit or stitch, the 300th's Fiber Arts Committee is meeting at 3 p.m. April 1 at the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society (LACS), 130 Waltham St. All enthusiasts are encouraged to participate.
"This is one of the many ways to volunteer to make Lexington's 9-month birthday party a success," explained Jessie Steigerwald, committee co-chair. The celebration kicks off Friday, Sept. 21, with special events scheduled through Memorial Day weekend 2013.
Anyone who knits, quilts, makes costumes or clothes, crochets or any other form of fiber arts should come with ideas and suggestions.
In addition, kits will be available for those interested for making tie pillows and costumes needed for a musical revue of fashion through the 300 years 1713-2013.
Two quilting groups are being formed to create quilts to be donated to the town. Other items will be sold or auctioned to help defray costs of the 300th celebration at the Country Fair on opening day Sept. 22 and at the Musical Fashion Show Revue Oct. 27.
Co-chairing the Fiber Arts Committee with Jessie are Tanya Morrisett and Kim Coburn.
For anyone who can't attend meetings but wants to participate by making their own creations or is in need of a kit call or email Corrine Steigerwald at 781-861-7190 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
