Short Threads from the Needle’s Eye…

Well its May, I hope all of you survived Fiesta this year. If you are like me May is a busy month. I think I have only one weekend without prior commitments!

Did you see the article that Karin Shaw wrote for the newsletter last month asking for original designs from the membership to put in a calendar? I think this is an excellent idea that it allows the members of the guild to display some of their fantastic work. It would be a great fund raiser that requires minimal work on our part because all the pieces have been finished. If you are interested in participating let Karin know.

I want to thank Mary Hodges for teaching our April project. If you are interest in getting involved why not teach a technique class or present a program. Many of you have your own areas of stitching expertise and I think the guild could benefit from this knowledge. The Guild is always looking for new ideas. So if you’re interested contact Pat Sweet.

I want to thank Pat Sweet, Diane Williams and Marilyn Veach for making our May Luncheon a success. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes and these lovely ladies do a fantastic job every time.
