November 2020 Zoom Meeting

First of all, we would like to reach out with a BIG thank you to all the techie people that are setting up and running our Zoom Meetings.   Caryl, Linda, Evalyn and Jon we can't thank you enough.  It is so nice to 'see' everyone and to hear about their new projects and just share the fellowship.   Just like missing an in-person meeting, we have all grown to hate to miss a  Zoom Meeting.     Not only are our monthly meetings done via Zoom, a monthly stitch-in via Zoom continues.  The Stitch-in is the fourth Saturday of each month from 10 am to 12-noon.  Future scheduled dates are 12/26, 1/23/21 and 2/27/21.   

Business Meeting 

  • For each meeting, we ask members to continue to submit photos of any finishes to Linda D.  Photos need to be submitted to Linda no later than the Tuesday prior the second Saturday of the month.  (Reminds me of the school problem - If a train left Chicago at 10 pm traveling at 65 mpg when.......) This will allow Linda and Caryl the time to work their magic to incorporate your photos into the slide show that will be shared at the meeting.  Please remember to include your name and the designer name in your email.  Following the meetings, the slide shows will be uploaded to the Facebook page.
  • Treasury Report was read.
  • Those darned germs!
    The current updated membership roster was shared by Caryl C. 
  • The Annual Holiday Exchange will be rescheduled once we can again meet in person.
  • The Anniversary Event is still in the wings.  It is too special to be done virtually!  This event will also be rescheduled once we can again meet in person.
  • Membership renewals are due January 1st for the 2021 year.  Please print, complete and submit your membership form found at this link.  


December Meeting - Barbara Hutson, Queenstown Samplers, will be joining our Zoom Meeting.   She will show and discuss some of her designs.  If you have an antique sampler, she is willing to provide you will any information she can on the piece.   Send a photo of your sampler to Linda D. and she will make sure Barbara gets the photo to research prior to the meeting.   Photos can be sent between now and December 9th.   During the meeting Barbara will provide any information she can about your sampler.

As a special treat, Salty Yarns will be offering a 15% discount on any of Barbara's designs in December.   

January Meeting - January will be the end of our 2020 Designer Showcase.   For 2020 Blackbird Designs was the designer chosen.   Please send photos of any pieces your stitched in 2020.  Send your Blackbird photos to Linda anytime between now and January 6th and let her know they are for the January Blackbird Showcase.
