A Note From Our President

Happy Summer and Welcome New Members and Returning Members

The heat is on! Our 100 degree days have started early this year. We had a wet spring, which is good. We’ll need it going into summer. My crepe myrtles are blooming, the grass is still green. Many birds are visiting the feeders and other creatures venture into the yard at night. Summer is in full swing-boating, skiing, swimming, picnics, vacations. I hope you still manage to get in some stitching time as you enjoy your summer activities. A small quick to stitch project (such as an ornament for our Holiday exchange?) while stitching in public will get comments and may peak the interest of a new stitcher.

In the last three months we have had a lecture on the Legend of the Tudor Rose by Christy B. and Erin M. of Relics in Situ, which included a very interesting history lesson. And a talk on Ladies’ Pockets by Dawn R. from Collector with a Needle with a pocket project designed for us. I hope to see some finishes of this in the next few months. Mine is still in the works. We had a Question and Answer session with Megan S. from Lapin Loops about her business, her inspiration, etc.

There are some fun monthly programs coming up, so hurry over to the programs page and check them out. We are planning a fall workshop with Robin of Olde Willow Designs-more details will be coming soon. We also have a SAL, Mary Fosh, by Sylvia of Running With Needles and Scissors, set to start July 25-this will be by Zoom. And MAGIC-oh, my goodness! We have seen some inspiring completions. The talent and skill of all our members continues to inspire me.

So, keep those needles busy and have a great summer!
