Report – October 2019

After a long summer break that included several very enjoyable stitching garden parties, the Scarborough Needlearts Guild has reconvened and launched its 2019-2020 program.  It promises to inspire both experienced and new stitchers.

For example, besides working on their own individual projects, in the coming weeks members will have the opportunity to participate in decorating and assembling buttons that feature a different stitch on each one.  Various Guild members will lead the button workshops and demonstrate and provide coaching on specific stitches beginning with cross stitch and blackwork.

The Guild is also exploring the possibility of arranging a tour for members to a location of interest that would complement the weekly gatherings.  As well, we will be continuing to feature the stitching stories of Guild members. This is a popular and highly appreciated program item at Guild meetings.

The annual Christmas ornament project will begin in early November to be finished in time for the holiday season.

On a sad note, we conclude here with a tribute by past president Dale Edwards to Ella Reid who passed away this summer. “Ella was a valuable, long-time member of Scarborough Needlearts.  She was always cheerful, with a smile for everyone.  Beginning with patterns from members and designers, she went on to create her own special designs.  She was a faithful attender and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.”

I hope that everyone is having a great summer and would like to thank everyone for making this year a great one. As we continue to meet at the fabulous garden parties hosted be many of our members, we would like to thank all the members to who have hosted and attended theses events.

Our members ran program this year; each month different volunteers facilitated a group workshop, project, or talk. We had great response from all members, and a wonderful variety of lesson and talks were done. Thank you to everyone for making this past year a success.

This year in addition to program, individual members have been asked to share a stitching story. This story can be about anything they would like to present on, members are encouraged to share about their personal history in stitching, or provide the history of a stitch.

Have a wonder summer, and looking forward to seeing everyone come the fall.
