October 2019 Meeting

Business Meeting -

Patrick discussed the 19 in 2019 Challenge.  Patrick said he has recently reviewed all our entries.   He is pleased with the number of stitchers making entries.   He promises a great prize for the top winners at the end of the challenge.

Upcoming -
November - We will have our regular meeting on Saturday, November 9th meeting.   For those who signed up, we will taught by Janice Note of Noteworthy Needle how to drill a foam pumpkin from an assortment of patterns.   Once drilled, we will be able to cross stitch the pumpkins once drilled!  

In the afternoon, is a class with Beth Seal called Crowning Glory.  Pre-registration and pre-stitching a must.  On Sunday, a third class.   Sunday's class is with Janice.   She will teach the assembly of Turn-Turn-Turn.  

Each class requires pre-registration - which is now closed.

December - Annual Holiday Luncheon and Exchange.   The Guild will provide wraps and bottled water.   Members should bring a covered dish of either a salad or dessert type.   There is no sign up.   We seem to always have a good variety.   Please bring your own drink to the luncheon.

January - Members will share any stitching related items they received over the holidays.   We will also have two members showcase there 'stitching' story.

February - Cindy Steinhoff will be out guest speaker.

Chester County Historical Society - We received a request from the Chester County Historical Society.   They are competing for a grant from the National Geographic Society.  Currently they are in fourth place.     Supporters can vote up to five times each day from now until October 28th.   Among the many other treasures they have, the Chester County Historical Society has such a beautiful sampler collection, please consider logging in and showing your support.

 Martha Davis Sampler by Barbara.

Robin shared an idea.   She took her Christmas Cross Stitch magazines to Staples and had them bound.   The cost was $5.15

 Look how nicely they open and live flat.

Program - A lesson in bullion knows.

Patrick shared doodle clothes, milliner's needles and floss for everyone.    He walked us through perfecting not only bullion knots but also french and colonial knots.    Patrick even included little known 'sound effects' that help you complete the knots perfectly.  

From bottom up, each bullion knot got better.

 Knots made easy by Patrick!  Thank you for the lesson.
