Short Threads from the Needle’s Eye… February 2018

Thank You to all for the many suggestions of places to consider for the Night meetings, Technique Classes and other get togethers beginning in March! We have decided on St. Mark‟s UMC Church, 1902 Vance Jackson, San Antonio TX 78213. This is the church where we held the May Luncheon last year.

Please remember, the February Night Meeting will still be at The Chandler Center as will the Jeanette Rees class.

Thanks to Karin Shaw for a wonderful program on Schwalm Embroidery! The timing was perfect, just as we have had two inquiries looking for a group to teach them about Whitework and other “original” types of embroidery.

Joan mailed 33 blocks to Love Quilts USA. That must be a record! The Chapter is certainly generous with their time and talent. See Joan‟s column for news on this year‟s projects. “And a good time will be had by all.”

We will also be having a table at the SCR Seminar 2018 Stash sale. Please bring items you would like to donate to this Chapter fund raiser to me or to any of the Board members. We also need ideas for things to go in our prize basket for the Seminar. Our last baskets have been such a success!

EGA will be celebrating “Stitch in Public Day” on February 3rd. Since we celebrate this all year, we are asking everyone to make a special effort to come to the Stitch in at the Memorial Library on Saturday February 17th and we will designate that as our special “Stitch in Public Day”.

Happy Stitching!
