Our own member, Karin Shaw, is exhibiting some of her paintings in Guadalupe Watercolor Group 25th Anniversary Show in Kerrville and she would like to invite you to come and see all the wonderful talent out there!
Forest Hills Library has a beautiful, locked display case. Sandra, one of the librarians, puts a sign with our website beside the glass. Most visitors want to know if the items are for sale. It may bring some interest in our second Monday night stitch ins at the library. They will be closed on Veteran’s Day November 12 but should be open Monday, December 10. We will be setting up the exhibit on Thursday, November 1 at 10:00 am and it will stay there till January 3, 2019. If you have any patriotic pieces and can part with them for 2 months, please bring them to the October 23 day or night meetings or a stitch in. Please be sure your name is on the back of the pieces
I wish you all could have been at SANGri-la, our annual retreat, last month in Kerrville. We all had a wonderful time and with the rain much stitching was accomplished by everyone. Thanks from all of us for everyone‟s contributions from the committees wonderful planning and goodie bags to the snacks and prizes from all the attendees. It is planned to be the same week next year but “watch this space!”
REMINDER! On the second Wednesday in October, The Yarn Barn will be involved in the annual Yarn Crawl, so we will be meeting at Northwood Church that day at the usual times.
Joan will be gathering Patriotic Needlework this month for the exhibit at the Forest Hills Library to be set up on November 1. Please bring your pieces to meetings and stitch ins by the Chapter meetings, October 23.
Harriet Nelson passed away in September. She was a member for many years and her love of stitching both with SANG and several ANG Chapters was remarked on by her family. She was special to me as we lived close to each other when I lived here in the 1990s and we used to bring the before meeting goodies on Halloween and St. Patrick‟s Day.
I will see you all when I return from the National Seminar at all the meetings, stitch ins, and I hope, at the upcoming Seminar work day at St. Marks on Vance Jackson, October 13.
Sang will be having a mini exhibit at St. Marks UMC at 1902 Vance Jackson on September 30th in the Fellowship Hall at 11:30 am. The guild is blessed to have use of the church and would like to show the church congregation what we do. If anyone would like to participate please bring your piece or pieces to the September meeting and give them to a primary board member. Please put your name and phone number on the back. They will be displayed on a table so they can’t be too big. There will be a seminar work day on Saturday, the 29th and they will be set up then. You are welcome to join in the pot luck meal. Please bring a side dish or favorite desert to be shared.
September already?! This is the start of a new year of meetings and programs, so keep an eye on the newsletter for all the upcoming events. We had several ladies interested in our group at both the exhibit at the Encino Library and our table at the Bead Show and we hope they will all come to some of our gatherings soon!
Our Annual September Retreat is full as usual and many of us will be gone for most of that week. There may be very few at The Yarn Barn on the second Wednesday of September. Also, on the second Wednesday in October, The Yarn Barn will be involved in the annual Yarn Crawl, so we will be meeting at Northwood Church that day.
I had a note from Shawn Miller thanking us for hosting her at our May Luncheon and for so many of us taking her class. She would like to see our finished pieces, so if you have finished the stocking or finish it in the future, send her a picture or at least put one in the newsletter.
I will be the SANG Representative at the EGA Annual Meeting during the Seminar in Louisville. Can you believe EGA has been in existence for 60 years? The slate of officers (biographies are in your NeedleArts) and a bylaws change regarding the officers are the agenda. Talk to me if you have questions.
On a sad note, Marsha Surad passed away in late July. She was a member for many years and her love of stitching was noted in her obituary.
Also, our condolences go out to Diane and John Williams on the passing of John’s mother.
I will see you all, I hope, at all the meetings, stitch ins, and I hope, at the upcoming Seminar work days, at St. Marks on Vance Jackson, September 29 and October 13.
