November 2016

We had very successful Stitch-In’s throughout the summer at various members’ homes. Our September Meeting included a Death’s Head Wrapped Button Class taught by member Althea Church. In October we received our stitching project – Fear Not by
Little House Needlework’s in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In addition, members contributed money for a local charity, Moments House, that provides services to cancer patients and their families. The chapter matched the members’ contribution and a total of $200.00 was sent to this agency. For November we began stitching the Birds and Flowers Sewing Accessories by Nancy Backus. These charts have been featured in EGA’s Needle Arts Magazine over four issues. We will wind up the year in December with a needle work exchange with a theme of sampler or sewing. Members can choose to make a scissors fob, pin cushion, or pin keep. The meeting will end with a Pizza Social.

Due to health reasons, our co-president Donna Lefkowitz resigned. Our treasurer stepped up to run our monthly meetings for October and November. In December we will vote a new slate of officers. We thank Donna for her years of service as President of our Guild.

Happy Stitching,

- Lynn McCann
