May Meeting

Alas, this blogger did not attend the May meeting of DVHSG so I must rely on our ever so competent Secretary and her notes for the newsletter.

Following a short business meeting, 
Kim Nugent of Samplers Not Forgotten provide a presentation. Participants were able to leave with finished scissors fobs. The meeting was followed by an afternoon class which was very informative. For those in the afternoon class, you can purchase “Fray Block” online through Amazon. It is also available at Joann’s for $4.99.  (Maybe someone will email me photos or post them on FB and I can update here.)

For our Stitch-a-long,
the “Girls at the Guild”, we will be working on rows 6-7-8 for May into June. We encourage you to bring your piece to our monthly meeting and share your progress.

Heads up! 
Guild President, Susan D.  discovered that she had a red ribbon that does not belong to her in with her pieces from Woodlawn. If you are missing a red ribbon, let Susan know at the next meeting.
