There's a twist to our chapter's summer picnic this year. It will be a stitch-n-chat party.

On Tuesday, June 11, Thomas S-G will once again open his beautiful home to us.

Doors will open at 10 am, for those who would like to come and stitch for a bit. If you don't want to stitch that day, that's fine, come at noon for the party! Tom will keep his home open until 5 pm for those who would like to get a little more stitching done in the afternoon.

Let Tom know what food or drink you can bring to the event. You can also email information to

See you there!
