President's Message
Doreen Snyder

So many of us have dealt with hurricane Irma in the last month; some sheltering in place, some evacuating, and some out-of-town and wondering how things are at home. I am grateful for your safety and looking forward to enjoying my end-of-year stitching and its de-stressing benefits.

How nice it is to be welcoming four new members to our chapter in 2017: Mary Ferraro, Nicole Clark, Sarah J. Adelt, and Georgia Peterson! I first met Mary at a procrastinators’ meeting hosted by Jineen. Mary was a guest, and she must have been encouraged by our stitching stories because she joined the chapter soon after. Nicole Clark is a life-long embroiderer who has been hanging out with Andrea Eufrazio and Lee Ferguson at their weekly stitching sessions at Patrick Air Force Base. Nicole accepted our invitation to meet our members informally at several of our Loose Threads Friday morning sessions, and has now joined the chapter. I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting sisters Sarah J. Adelt (Avon Park, FL) and Georgia Peterson (Lorena, TX), although we have exchanged emails. Both Sarah and Georgia are very familiar with EGA having been members of other chapters. We are happy to welcome all of you to the Indian River chapter, and I look forward to learning more about you and how we can inspire your continuing passion for the needle arts

Did you enjoy working on the September General Meeting program, “For the Love of Stitching” by Mary Polityka Bush? Thank you, Stephanie Murphy, for leading and assisting. Be sure to bring it to the October meeting to learn the finishing technique. If you were not involved in this project, you still have five very good reasons to attend the October meeting —the five opportunity baskets making their debut. You don’t want to miss the chance to get a close look at all the goodies..

It is time to consider what you will bring to the November super show and tell program. Making a list might help: first, any finished projects that have not yet been shown at a previous general meeting, (Key word—finished); other projects to bring (whether or not they are completed) and those worked on in a special interest group, such as a GCC, sampler group, Inspirations magazine group, beading group, Florida map group, etc. I especially would like to see all of your projects inspired by the 40th anniversary sampler designs book. Our designers did a fabulous job. Be inspired!

Happy Stitching,

We had a display at Port Malabar for September. Thank you for all the submissions. There are three displays planned for 2018. Two at Port Malabar Library and 1 at Viera Library. If you have a suggestion of a location, please contact Christine.

Plan ahead for the displays.
