President's Message
Doreen Snyder

How nice it was to celebrate our 41st chapter anniversary with such a delightful group of stitching friends! Aline Lauzon did a wonderful job coordinating the refreshments and décor; and so many members contributed delectable morsels. Thank you ladies for making it such a special occasion..

We all enjoyed sharing our oldest unfinished projects and the unique stories that went with them. It is comforting to know so many of us are in the same boat. The adorable scissor fob prize for the oldest unfinished project was stitched by Lynn and finished by Ceci, our program chairs. The prize went to Christine Kampmeyer whose project was first started in 1965.

We are in for a real treat at the June General Meeting. Our own Christine Kampmeyer, a professional framer, will share tips and tricks as she demonstrates what you can do to frame your own needlework projects. You will also have a chance to win the next 50/50 drawing ... ask Jean Simson if you should take a chance.

Do you remember? A small project called a "stash buster" was introduced at the April General Meeting by Lynn and Ceci. Instructions for the Laced Floral Ornament are on Page 28 of the March 2018, edition of the NeedleArts magazine. Individuals participating are encouraged to use only items from their stash to make the piece. Bring the completed project to the June meeting for show and tell.

Christmas in July is on its way. We have again invited a representative from The Haven to our July General Meeting to share news and progress about the three homes for children. It is our opportunity to be generous with gifts for this worthwhile organization. We also will be working on our Kissing Pillows project at the meeting. These pillows are for members of the military being deployed from PAFB.

I think of July as “the pause that refreshes.” It is the time in my stitching year when I plan my holiday stitching projects. I give myself permission to set aside those works- in-process (WIPS), and I look forward to starting new projects to be completed by Christmas.

Happy Stitching,
