Short Threads from the Needle’s Eye… December 2017

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving as much as I did! Always good to be with family and enjoy all the treats of the day!

I am thankful for all those who came to the exhibit at Chandler House and those who brought or sent their lovely pieces! I think the residents enjoyed it.

Also for all the Cross Stitch blocks turned in for Love Quilts, and threads for Threads of Blessing and stash sold and out of our houses : ) . The generosity of our members never ceases to amaze me!

By the time you read this the Christmas Luncheon will have happened and I will have a new ornament for my tree. I am looking forward to what I hear is great Italian food. Please tell us your thoughts on the location and ideas for future events.

Please remember to sign-up for the pilot class with Jeanette Rees in February and Joyce has several inviting programs and classes planned . We will be getting into working on Seminar 2020 as well. I hope everyone will be involved in the fun and work to make it a great event (is stitching ever work?).
As always, READ ON!

May your Christmas and other Holidays be filled with all the things that make you happy, including the joy of seeing your handwork make your loved ones happy, too!

More in 2018!

2020 SCR Seminar Discovery

Can you believe that San Antonio Needlework Guild last hosted a South Central Regional Seminar in 2008??? SCR Seminars are successful because of the hard work and dedication of chapters that take on the responsibility of organizing them. But it truly does take the efforts of the whole chapter — some behind the scenes, others center stage.

SANG will be holding an exploratory seminar meeting on at 2:00 on January 14, 2017. Diane Williams has graciously opened her home for this meeting. Believe it or not — the time is NOW to start planning for 2020 or even later.

Anyone who is interested serving on a committee, providing input on the feasibility of hosting a seminar, or has ideas to share is encouraged to attend.
