Hi Stitchers. I hope this letter finds everyone doing well and fitting some stitching into your busy schedules.
This month we will be asking for Nominating Committee members. We will be voting on the new Board Members in November, so I thought it would be nice to have some time to come up with the new slate of officers. We need two positions….President and Programs. It was suggested that Programs be position of two members to make it a bit easier. We do have some ideas floating out there for at least some of next year’s programs.
Members, please think about volunteering for one of these positions. We have a great chapter and members. Everyone is so helpful and really makes these positions much easier than you might think.
We have secured our venue for the Holiday Party. It is scheduled for December 7 at the Scripps Ranch Community Center. It will be a Tea theme and, of course, a potluck dessert for after the Tea. Bring something to take the extras home since the desserts are always quite yummy! We will also do the gift exchange. The usual monetary limit of $20 and only stitching related gifts. It should be fun as always. Laura always does such a wonderful job! And just a reminder of SDANG’s Plum Blossom Kimono workshop. See the flyer for details or go to the website www.sdang.org. It is just a beautiful piece and everyone I know that has stitched this piece just loved doing it.
The program this month is the pincushion frame. I have some frames that I will bring for purchase and some materials and batting. You will need some sewing thread and sewing needles to complete the project. I anticipate everyone should be able to leave with a finished project….Yay! They make nice little gifts too.
Well, I will let you get back to stitching. Stitching time is a very precious commodity after all.
