Report – October 2016

With the return to our regular Guild meetings and classes in September, we are also continuing our library displays and stitch-ins. As part of this, we hosted a mini-workshop for interested people on Bargello at the Forest Heights branch of KPL. Eight people signed up, the maximum number for the class and all the participants enjoyed the session, leaving with enough done to finish it at home.
We are planning another workshop at a different library branch in October and we are also participating in the Drumbo Fall Fair Saturday, September 24.

Classes for the year have started. We used a small surface embroidery project at the first meeting in September to get our feet wet while the business of registration was being looked after.

The rest of our Fall meetings will be devoted to Drawn Thread Embroidery with our guest instructor Ana Maria Kramer. On December 13, we finish 2016 off with our Christmas party and ornament exchange.

For 2017, we have two courses taught by our own members — surface embroidery using overdyed threads and then bargello. In addition, we are planning a seasonal “challenge” in February , and having a speaker in the Spring. Our Annual meeting is May 9.
