Program Vice President – Kim L.
Workshop Chair – Mary D.
Program Assistant Chair and Workshop Assistant Chair are still open. . .

Regarding the sampler restoration project the guild would like to fund, Jennifer M. reported that the director of the Ackworth School has told her they have a sampler from 1811 that needs to be restored and he will send a picture.

If anyone is interested in purchasing an additional pumpkin pincushion kit from the October program, Stephanie H. has extras; please contact her.

Beginning in January 2012, Mary D. will take sign ups for the Nancy Renssela Mystery Sampler by Linda Lautenschlager of “Chessie and Me”; cost will be under $125. She also sent an email to Brenda Gervaise of “With thy Needle and Thread” to inquire about her availability to come and teach a workshop.

Jennifer M. displayed small frames that hold needlework and can also be worn as jewelry, from a company called “Stampin’ Up”. Contact Katherine P. if you are interested in purchasing this product.
