What programs would you like to see in the future? Is there a stitch, a technique, a subject or a speaker you would like to have included in a program? Give your suggestions to Stephanie or anyone of your Officers..




Our Broken Needle Ceremony will be led by Adrienne Meyer. Bring your broken or rusty needles (any kind) and pins to properly dispose of them and participate in this unique ceremony. Plus we will have our Annual Stash Sale. Please bring your unwanted or unneeded needlework items, such as unfinished projects, kits, canvas, fabric, threads, and tools to be donated to our local chapter. Please place each item (or set of like items) into plastic bags and staple or tape a 3x5 index card to the bag. A 3x5 card can be attached directly to large (frame) or sealed items directly with no plastic bag if the item is contained (i.e., sealed/taped kit). Please get the items to Front St by 9 a.m. or if you need a pickup of the items from your home, please call Marty or Lynn. Bring cash or check to the SALE and find some gently-used treasures for YOUR home!

Our March Program at the General Meeting will be Beginning Blackwork by our own Jineen K. She will be teaching the EGA Petite Project Blackwork Bookmark by Janet Salerno. You can sign up at the February meeting and get the list of needed supplies. Be sure to download the pattern from EGA Website, select Petite Projects before our March meeting.. There will be a few hard copies available at the March meeting.

Blackwork continued. We will finish our Blackwork Bookmark led by Jineen K.

May will bring our anniversary celebration and Pin Ceremony where we will award new anniversary pins (5, 10, 20) to members. A special make-n-take will be provided!

You are invited to bring along your current stitching project and join us. There is often a small project being led by a chapter member to help us learn a new technique. There is always sharing of the latest magazines and books and updates on current guild activities. Satellite groups are a great way for members who cannot make day meetings to connect with other chapter members. We have two satellite groups.
