Short Threads from the Needle’s Eye…

The “Gone Stitchin’” Seminar in Sugar Land was wonderful! Congratulations to The Tip of Texas Chapter and the Region!

Diane Williams, our nominee, won a Heart & Hand award for her contributions to the Growth of Our Chapter and for Leading Us Forward through the years! Congratulations, Diane!

Our prize “basket” On the Road, was won by Judy Prukop of the Tip of Texas Chapter, well known to our Chapter. She was thrilled and her note of thanks is also in this newsletter. Linda Bell, Tawney Carter (Stitch-in-Turn), Joyce McCoig, Jessica Jones and Joan Vanderbrink, our thanks to all of you for contributing to the basket. I really had a hard time parting with it and tried hard to bring it home again!

The winning GCC’s are listed on another page with details on signing up. SCR will pay the registration. The deadline to sign up is September 30. If you complete them in the allotted time and send them for evaluation, you will receive another $25 towards your expenses. See more news from the Region’s Annual Meeting on other pages.

I also hope you have been looking at the pieces for the 2018 seminar “GuilDy Treasures” in Dallas. There are some very tempting pieces! One comment from them for those attending-”bring a tote bag as you will receive a project bag as your “Registration Bag.”

Once again the EGA President Leslie Gagliardi, attended our Seminar and reported that the Crown Jewels fund raiser is drawing a lot of attention and donations. There is still time to enroll. EGA is also becoming a presence at large Needle Arts events to spread the word about our wonderful Guild.

Congratulations, too, to Karin Shaw on a fabulous exhibit of her water colors as part of the Arts at the Castroville Public Library the whole month of June.

A huge thank you to Joan Vanderbrink and Mary Hodges for representing SANG at the KLRN Auction and for being on their feet the whole night!

This is the July/August issue of the newsletter so please save it (particularly the calendar) so you don’t miss any of our fun stitch ins and deadlines, etc.

Stay Cool and Happy Stitching!
