Belle Isle Project Update
We’re almost there! We’ve manage to cut, sew and dye in the past couple of weeks. We will be hanging “Summer Breeze” this week for the opening this Saturday June 23rd. Check the fb event page for more details. CCDC will be having a BBQ on the beach near our installation to celebrate, so come on out to eat and party with us!

We had three sewing machines running at a time.
Ironing the ends to make the sewing easier.
Pinning crew prepped the fabric for the sewing crew.
The last rinse of the night — the most vibrant red.
