Whether you are new to guild or not, every year the SCR Region selects the criteria that they will be using to select the Heart and Hands Award winner for the year. This year that criteria is Option 1: The member who has volunteered the most to our guild or Option 2: The member who has promoted the most growth within our chapter. Past winners of this award from our chapter include Joyce McCoig, Joan Vanderbrink and Marilyn Veach. This is the perfect opportunity to show our appreciation and recognize someone that does a lot for our guild. If you know someone who meets the criteria for this year please let Pat Sweet or Jessica Jones know by sending either one of them an email with the title: Heart and Hands Nominee. Make sure to include your list of reasons for nominating this individual. The deadline for nominations will be April 19, 2017.
Heart in Hand Award
SANG will be stitching at the Bead Market at Pedrotti Ranch on Hausman Road on Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12. Please mark these dates on your calendar. More info will be in summer newsletter.
Almost to the end of the Programs and some of the fun for the first half of the year!
I’m pleased that so many have volunteered for the cross stitch Love Quilt blocks again this year! The animals are so cute and fun to stitch-not too late for more sign-ups! The Bargello ornament balls look like a good carry along project for vacations and hiding from the heat at home as well.
I hope, too, that most of you will join us at the May Salad Luncheon! Bring a salad or dessert-homemade or not- or talk to Diane Williams if you have something else in mind. The information and coupon are later in the newsletter.
We are still looking for our perfect nominee for The SCR Heart and Hand Award. Please read Jessica Jones’s article for the details and the deadline and talk to either of us if you have a suggestion.
Jessica and I are carrying tickets for the 2018 SCR Seminar drawing. The Guildy Treasures Seminar will be in Dallas in June of 2018.
I will also be carrying copies of all the GCC’s for those who need to see the choices to vote on the SCR selections to be offered (voting open until June and I have ballots as well)
In the National EGA news, Registration is still open for Seminar 2017 The Blue Ridge Rendezvous in Ashville NC August 15-20. Joyce is carrying tickets for the 2018 EGA Seminar in Louisville as well!
See you all at the Meetings, Stitch ins, Luncheon and anytime else the Stitching Lamp is lit!
