Past Programs & Business:

January and February:
Members created their own Ukrainian Samplers.

March:

Membership:

We have gained one new member as results of a summer library stitch-in. Two other visitors have expressed interest and will hopefully join in the future. GMC now has 32 members.

Outreach:

Library stitch-ins for summer are being scheduled with Essex Junction in June and South Burlington in July. More will be scheduled later. Members are working on bookmarks for the libraries. Over 100 are to be stitched with the majority featuring this year’s theme, “Space”. A workshop will be given for youth during their April vacation also using Space as a theme and at that time the South Burlington Library will also debut a “Discover Embroidery” work-box that can be borrowed by youth. This box has been prepared by our chapter and contains a book of project lessons, examples of ideas, and supplies for a child to make 1 or 2 small projects. (Photos and list of the items will be included in the GMC June NER Report.)

Shelburne Museum Volunteers: Members volunteer each week from May to October in the Hat and Fragrance Building, stitching and answering questions. Plans are to have a member volunteer present at least 3 days a week. The Artisan Shop has been closed so GMC will be able to sell only the small pins and ornaments at the Museum Shop.

Civil War Flag Reproduction, The Vermont 1st Cavalry

The Vermont 1st Cavalry Regiment Flag Project will be featured in an upcoming Needlearts magazine and in the Vermont Magazine in July. Ellen Thompson has written the articles and with photography by Natalie Fiechenfield.
