Ava T. requested that guild members wear TRSG nametags to the meetings and announced a special drawing next month for those who comply.

Lynn E. brought a guest – Charlotte C., and as of today, the guild boasts 102 members!

Michelle L. handed out corrections for the Amy Mitten workshops and reported that she was slowly receiving information from Jackie du Plessis regarding the upcoming Carried Away (Saturday, 9/18) and Lady Jane’s Garden (Sunday, 9/19) workshops.

There is a possibility that next year we may be able to join with DN&TG to bring Sherri Jones, of Patrick’s Woods, for a workshop.

Stay tuned next month for the Secret Stitcher reveal at the June 1 guild meeting, plus progress reports on the MAGIC projects. And one last item: please pay Marie Z. for Tudor Rose scissors that have been ordered on your behalf.

The presentation this month was given by Gloria Moore, who spoke about the birth of her design business, Milady’s Needle. She shared her thoughts on what it is like to be a needlework designer in the current economy, the process of designing, and the challenges facing a designer. One of the greatest challenges facing designers is Copyright Infringement and she clarified those things a stitcher can do with a pattern under current copyright law. A lively discussion followed her presentation.
