Treasury - Members donated to the guild a portion of their profits from sales at the August Stash Reallocation Sale. Items left after the meeting were taken to Fireside Stitchery by Susan D. for eBay sales. Any profits from the sales will be added to the treasury. The eBay sales usually take several months after drop off to be cataloged, photographed and put up for auction. Nancy F. will let us know when we receive payment.
SAL - Work on the iStitch Amethyst Band Sampler continues. If you are part of the SAL, please bring your sampler to the next meeting. It is always fun to see every one's progress and to see all the variations stitchers have done. There are some new projects from Carol Ridyard for another sampler and some holiday offerings. Congratulations to Linda Daeleman for winning the recent iStitch raffle.
Stitchy Day - Members Liz and Deb, also known as Flosstube's - The Country Stitchers - are partnering with two of their local needlework shops to schedule some one-day Stitching Retreats at these shops. First up is September 24 at Hodge Podge in Strasburg. Second in the series will be on October 17 at Stitches Unlimited in Lancaster. They are doing this to promote local “brick and mortar” businesses. Check out the drop-down box on their most recent Flosstube video for details and shop contact information.
