President Linda welcomed everyone and conducted a brief business meeting.
- 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 continues. Keep updating your list of your finishes.
- We will continue with these Zoom style meeting for the foreseeable future. A reminder is posted on Facebook each month. If you would like to share Show and Tell, forward your photos to Linda D. the weekend before the scheduled meeting.
She has also created a kit for us and members had the opportunity to order it in advance. It is not a class, so you do not have to get the kit to participate. Note: You can still participate in the meeting and hear her presentation even if you chose not to purchase the kit. Also, Salty Yarns will be giving a 15% discount on Needlework Press patterns during the month of September.
Francine also shared some resources for collecting:
Again a very 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. If you cannot join the Zoom Meeting live, Jon and Evalyn and Caryl do a FANTASTIC job of recording and uploading the meeting. This month I wasn't available at meeting time so I watched the video. It was just like I was at the Zoom Meeting and found myself smiling and agreeing with some of the comments as if it were a "live" meeting. We are so fortunate to have this option! Thank you all that make it possible.
