Connecticut River Valley Chapter - News

Meetings (September though June)

Location: Thistle Needleworks, 506 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, CT.

As of our April meeting, the chapter will meet at Thistle Needleworks in Wethersfield, CT. Hopefully this will be more convenient geographically for our members as this area is where the chapter met for many years.

At our February meeting we completed our group project, Frozen Reflections. April 6th is our annual meeting, and the subject for this day is rozashi. Ginny Currie has taught this technique for many years and has the supplies needed, so we will work on a beginning piece that is the picture of a little Japanese girl.

The plan for our June 8th meeting is a Tea Cozy Party. We hope that several members will begin or continue work on a tea cozy for the exhibit at the national seminar in 2020.

An exhibit has been on display for six weeks in March and April at Seabury, a retirement community in Bloomfield. As many as 30 newly completed pieces have been submitted by our members for their gallery.

We are planning to do some outreach at the Durham Fair this fall. This may include demonstrations for a day or two and sample pieces where individuals may try some stitches.
