Sewcranky in the Park -  Andreas (Romulo) Pico Museum,  Monday Feb. 20

Greetings Folks... if anyone is in the Los Angeles area, and is interested in trying their hand at sewing on a hand crank machine, or bringing their own hand crank "out to play in the park"... Sew Cranky will be at the Andreas  Pico Adobe Museum, Monday Feb 20. The museum is run by the San Fernando Valley Historical Society, and is open on Mondays for tours... we will be there 11 to 3:30. Mike and Ginger Alberti (aka Sew Cranky) bring machines, and some projects (including some small quick projects for kids of all ages to sew for FREE). Join us for a fun cranky day in the park! — at San Fernando Valley Historical Society.  The Museum is located in Mission Hills at 10940 Sepulveda Blvd.  just north of the 118 freeway.  The entrance is actually located where Brand Blvd joins / merges with Sepulveda.
