CH Senior Center News

The Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center (SAC), located in the CH Community Center at 1 Monticello Blvd., offers a wide variety of programming for those 60 and older, and is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A complete schedule of programs is published in the community center’s newsletter, which is available at Cleveland Heights City Hall, local libraries, the community center and online at

SAC’s focus for the month of July is needlework.

Quilting 101, a new craft workshop taught by Cleveland Heights fiber artist Martha Young, will begin on Thursday, July 6, 1–2:30 p.m., and continue through the month. Attendees will learn to create a hand-pieced placemat or table runner from beautiful fabric provided by the instructor. Materials are provided, but class participants should bring a mechanical pencil, straight pins and fabric scissors if they have them.

Every Friday, 1–4 p.m., the Stitch Together group meets to work on needlework projects, including knitting, crochet, needlepoint and more. Attendees can share the company of friends and have an afternoon of fun. Experienced stitchers are available to answer questions and give advice, so bring whatever project you are working on.

Both activities are free of charge and beginners are welcome. Feel free to drop in and give needlework a try.

SAC membership is $5 for Cleveland Heights residents 60 and older. To sign up, bring a recent piece of mail (such as a bill) and a photo ID.
