Chapter members may sign up for programs at the general meetings. If you are unable to attend the preceding general meeting, contact Adrienne Meyer to reserve your space.
What programs would you like to see in 2013? Is there a stitch, a technique, a subject or a speaker you would like to have included in next year's programs? Please, let me know via email, or phone, or the old-fashioned way, with a word at the meeting.
We are all grateful to the members who develop and lead programs at our general meetings.
In April we will be presenting "A Choice of Scissors Cases". You will choose between one of two scissors case patterns which incorporate a variety of stitches and finishing techniques to create a scissors case. We will address stitching techniques at the April program, with finishing techniques to be covered in May.
Whisper of Roses be designer, Sheryl Schaeffer uses cross stitch, ladder stitch and twisted cord, among other techniques. Fabric, DMC floss, and other threads will be provided. Please bring standard stitching tools and, if desired, you own thread color selections.
Hardanger Scissor Case by designer Carole Kniepkamp has small Handanger elements and button hole stitch edging. Fabric and #5 and #8 perle cotton threads will be provided. Please bring your tools and, if you wish, your own selection of colors of perle cotton, Caron Watercolours or similar weight threads.
Interfacing, lining and threads will be available at the May meeting. Bring a sharp needle with other tools, as well as your own choices for lining/threads, as you wish.
This is also a Challenge Project for those who wish to depart from the patterns and create/design their own version. Finished cases should be completed and displayed at the October general meeting, so they can be shown and voted on, with the winner announced at our Annual Show & Tell in November.
|| ||Party Time May is our Anniversary month, celebrating 36 years of EGA's Indian River Chapter. To celebrate, we'll have a pot-luck luncheon at our General Meeting in May. Bring your favorite dish to share, but remember we will have the Anniversary Cake for dessert so sweets are not needed. More information will be forthcoming at our April meeting.
Carol Mallory- 2nd Vice President
You're invited to bring along your current stitching project and join the ladies of the satellite groups. There's often a small project being led by a chapter member to help us learn a new technique. There is always sharing ofthe latest magazines and books and updates on current guild activities. It's a great way to connect with other chapter members who love to stitch!
