If you have a facility that would like to have a Star Party, once a month, in any area of the NYS Capital District within 1 hour of Troy, arrangements can be made to have a Star Maker bring supplies to start a group in your area. Depending on distance, etc. and other activities, you will be the leadership of the facility.

Star Parties are held in nursing homes, at Boy and Girl Scout events, Key Club meetings, etc. and can be held at any time of the day. We like to schedule 2 hours for an event. 

A group of people have started a Craft Group to create lap quilts for veterans in nursing homes and hospice. We are in the beginning stages, so anyone locally that is interested, please let Susan know.

Need a Speaker for your next event? Susan will bring supplies, and your members can create Stars while the meeting is going on. All Stars pouched during the meeting will be for your members to share.
