President Linda D. welcomed everyone. She shared a few quick Guild updates and we moved directly into the program.
This month we welcomed designer Catherine Jordan as our guest speaker via Zoom. Her presentation was on needlework journals covers. She has created many beautiful book covers, for everything from small journal books to larger papier maché books. She said she often used them as gifts, thank yous, etc. She uses small journals available from the Dollar Store, office supply stores or Amazon. Once the needlework is finished, she 'covers' the journal just like we used grocery bags to cover our school books. She tacks the folded corners with a few stitches and voila!
Our Fall guild retreat is scheduled for October 15-17. The registration form was due by July 1. This is a MEMBERS ONLY retreat.
Our 21 in 21 challenge continue. Keep your list updated.

A special thanks to everyone who makes these meetings possible. From those who coordinate the "broadcasting", to our officers, to the great ideas for programming that we have each month, to the reminders and follow up from our secretary. Who would have thought when the pandemic started that we would still be able to share the joy of needlework together.
