Our summer was filled with “Stitch-Ins” at various member’s homes. All were enjoyed by those who attended. Our fall programs began with “Stuffing and Trimming Techniques for Pin Cushions” in September. Our October Meeting was stitching a free pattern from By The Bay Needleart – The Gift of God in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We also donated to a local charity that provides to breast cancer patients, families and friends. This is the third year that we have contributed to this organization. In November, we will have a tassel making class taught by Barbara Harry, a member of the guild. December will be our annual holiday party with a gift exchange. In January we will have a stitch in.
We had four members who did not renew their memberships this year. We now have only 16 members and 2 plural members. We are having difficulty coming up with a slate of officers for the coming term.

Happy Stitching,

- Lynn McCann
