President’s Message February 2019

Short Threads from the Needle’s Eye…

Our new Board met January 17, 2019 and a lot of new ideas came out of it. Watch this newsletter for upcoming projects, workshops, classes and Outreach projects.

We are approved for a booth at the San Antonio Mini Maker Faire at the Central Library on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 10:30 to 3:00 pm. Mark your calendars and come stitch with us. We can give out the skein of floss with our card attached. Hopefully visitors will check out our website.

We will be teaching a plastic canvas heart on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at Forest Hills Library from 3-5. We have the materials from last year. We have had 3-5 students learn beginning cross stitch. We will be at Maverick Library that evening. We had 3 new members at the day meeting and two of them, Joan and Kathy volunteered to help teach the class. We will have six teachers.

February 2 is Stitch in Public Day but February 16 at Memorial Library will be our Stitch in Public Day. Circle this date on your calendar. The library opens at 10:00 am and we are usually there waiting. The light is good so bring whatever you would like to stitch. We have a nice turnout at this library. Bring some of your bling projects to draw attention to our stitching.

We learned Sue Preston is moving to Florida soon. We wish her and husband Rick and Marie her mother all the best but she will be sure to keep in touch with SANG.
