News from the Region

The South Central Region’s annual meeting was held June 5, 2013 in Sugar Land, TX in conjunction with the annual SCR Seminar. Reports were provided by each of the SCR officers and are available to any SANG member on request. One of the most important announcements is the change in the region’s newsletter distribution using Constant Contact. If you have an email address and would like to be on distribution for this e-newsletter or any other EGA electronic publication, please email Tonya Parks at the EGA national office, typarks@egausa.org. The e- newsletter will be published bi-monthly in odd numbered months, released the last week of the month. Financial reports were presented, and a budget for 2014 was approved. The region traveling exhibit is being dismantled, and pieces will be returned to the person who stitched them. Three new program exchange projects have been added to the SCR website; and previous projects will be added in the future. Seminar chairs for 2014 and 2015 provided information on their respective events. SCR Seminar 2015 will be held in Lubbock, TX. Theme is “In Stitches! Serious Stitching, Not so Serious Stitchers.”

In other events, winner of the all expenses paid trip to next year’s seminar in Baton Rouge was a member of the Concho Pearl chapter.
