September Meeting

Caryl C., our secretary has been faithful in keeping all members up to date.....unlike your blog writer. I missed the September Meeting and will not be at the October Meeting either so I will share Caryl's information......

  • Member Patti H. gave a presentation on Gloucester County Samplers.  I saw her presentation at the Morven Museum last year and it was a good one!  Patti has charted several of the samplers for stitching and they are available at the Gloucester County Historical Society.
  • September SAL Assignment - Complete rows 14 and 15 of Girls of the Guild by September Meeting to stay on course!
  • Fall Guild Retreat - October 2 - 4.   This is a Members Only event.  
  • Annual Donation - Our planning committee will make a decision on the recipient of our annual sampler restoration donation for 2015 in early 2016.   More information will follow.  Past recipients have been:   Winterthur Museum, The Plimouth Jacket Foundation,  The Biggs Museum, The Chester County Historical Society, Lewes Historical Society and Odessa Historical Society.  
Girls having fun at OCMD Retreat.....I mean you do have to stop stitching to eat.
