Teacher: LMSG-Kathy Bourne
For this general meeting, each member is to bring a project from her stash which she has chosen as her year long project. There will be a display for Show and Tell and each member will complete a form for a “contract”. There will be a show and tell of completed – or not – projects at the December meeting and a number of prizes will be awarded.
| We started out the new year at a new meeting place, Sunrise Senior Living in Glen Ellyn. There were several important announcements given at the beginning of the meeting.
Please check the signup procedures for workshops as there have been a few changes made by the board. Signups for workshops will be accepted anytime after the workshop is announced. The cutoff date for registering for a workshop is six weeks prior to the scheduled workshop date. A minimum of 10 attendees are required for each workshop or it will be cancelled. A $25 deposit is required for each workshop. If you are registering for multiple workshops, you can send one check to cover all deposits. Please see the Signup Procedure for more information.
Kathy Bourne talked about our 2004 calendar of events. See the calendar for more information.
Our new membership chair, Mary Draniczarek reminded everyone to send in their membership renewals so that you do not miss out on any of out exciting activities scheduled for 2004.
Amy Keaton and Susan Balsai are already planning our 2005 calendar. They asked for input from the members on what teachers and presenters should be considered for 2005. If you have a suggestion, please contact the assistant program chair with your ideas.
Carol Schaal distributed the last issue of the printed newsletter to those who attended the meeting. The rest will be mailed this week so, if you did not get a chance to attend, you should be receiving it shortly.
There were a couple of announcements. Cottage Stitchery is closing on February 14th and they are having a graduated sale. Please contact them for more information.
Susan Balsai said that there is new book available titled “Lady and the Unicorn” that is very impressive. It is a story that takes place during the time when the famous Lady and the Unicorn tapestries were made which are now in Paris’s Musee National du Moyen-Age Thermes de Cluny.
Carol Schaal showed us some items that she purchased in London including note cards that contain pictures of the portions of the panels of a 17th century needlework casket and a stitcher’s diary with color pictures of antique needlework.
