Fall Quarterly

The Fall Quarterly will be held on Wednesday, October 17, at the Hawkes Center at Winterthur. (Turn right at the pond, sharp left at the stop sign.)

Following the meeting (don't forget your show and tell items!) we will go to the gallery where Linda Eaton will give us a brief overview of the new needlework exhibition:

Embroidery: The Thread of History

October 5, 2018–January 6, 2019
History can be defined as a series of events that are remembered and preserved through time. This exhibition explores the use of embroidery as historical documents that can deepen our understanding of women’s lives. It considers how needlework has been used to remember the past, document the present, and look forward to the future.

Summer Report

Chapter members are surely enjoying their summer, and travel.

The Christmas in July program schedule for August 7 has been canceled. Everyone's out of town! Materials for the items will be available at the October quarterly.

A small group of members spent time with the EGA Study Box on Florentine stitch and Bargello work.

Members also brought some of their own bargello work to display.

Community Service: Watch for sewing dates to put together Mother's Helper cloth bags that will be given to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington. These cloth bags will be distributed to the mothers of premature babies who need to use breast pumps to collect milk for their tiny babies. Several stitching dates will be scheduled later this summer and early fall.

 And there were wonderful show and tell items.
