President's Message
Doreen Snyder

What a delightful and informative presentation we shared at the June General Meeting! Our own Christine Kampmeyer shared tips and tricks, demonstrating what we can do to finish and/or frame our own needlework projects. My personal favorite was using the dining place-card holder to display a small project. I noticed many were taking notes...a sure sign of a successful program. Thank you, Christine...

Congratulations to our June 50-50 winner, Pam Murphy. Look for our next 50-50 opportunity at the September General Meeting.

I missed the Christmas-in-July General Meeting because I was in Winston-Salem taking two needlework classes at a Work-of-the-Hands event. Jean Farish and Terri Bay were the excellent instructors. I am passing their credentials on to our workshop search team, Lynn White and Adrienne Meyer. Iím sure The Haven appreciated our membersí generosity. While traveling in the car, I worked on my package of five kissing pillows, which I hope to complete in the next few weeks..

Itís coming soon...our annual book sale. I have three shopping bags loaded with books, many of them current best sellers, which are headed to the August General Meeting book sale. Since I am not an early morning person, I will send my books with a friend who will get there early. Christine has asked that all books for the sale be delivered to Front Street no later than 9:15 AM. If you typically run a little late, please send your books with a friend.

Did you get a chance at the July General Meeting to sign up for the program on finishing a round ornament? Some of us will be using the free design for an angel ornament from The Victoria Sampler. At the September General Meeting I will be demonstrating how to make the twisted cording with double tassels...the first step in finishing. The supply list for finishing will be available at the August General Meeting. Thereís more information in the Programs article in this newsletter.

Donít forget to check your stash for a new pattern, kit, or needlework gadget you would like to donate to our opportunity baskets fundraiser. It will be here before you know it.

Happy Stitching,

Library Displays
 Submitted by Christine Kampmeyer

There are two displays planned for September 2018. One at Port Malabar Library and the other at Martin Author King Library. Please bring some beginner and basic intermediate projects for the MLK Library Exhibit as we will be including children's framed stitching from a class that Christine has been teaching. Stop by and see them! If you have a suggestion of a location, please contact Christine.

Plan ahead for the displays and give Christine a call. .
