                                               Aline Lauzon - 2nd Vice President

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.
