Short Threads from the Needle’s Eye…

Almost to the end of the Programs and some of the fun for the first half of the year!

I’m pleased that so many have volunteered for the cross stitch Love Quilt blocks again this year! The animals are so cute and fun to stitch-not too late for more sign-ups! The Bargello ornament balls look like a good carry along project for vacations and hiding from the heat at home as well.

I hope, too, that most of you will join us at the May Salad Luncheon! Bring a salad or dessert-homemade or not- or talk to Diane Williams if you have something else in mind. The information and coupon are later in the newsletter.

We are still looking for our perfect nominee for The SCR Heart and Hand Award. Please read Jessica Jones’s article for the details and the deadline and talk to either of us if you have a suggestion.

Jessica and I are carrying tickets for the 2018 SCR Seminar drawing. The Guildy Treasures Seminar will be in Dallas in June of 2018.

I will also be carrying copies of all the GCC’s for those who need to see the choices to vote on the SCR selections to be offered (voting open until June and I have ballots as well)

In the National EGA news, Registration is still open for Seminar 2017 The Blue Ridge Rendezvous in Ashville NC August 15-20. Joyce is carrying tickets for the 2018 EGA Seminar in Louisville as well!

See you all at the Meetings, Stitch ins, Luncheon and anytime else the Stitching Lamp is lit!

Happy Stitching!
