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.

Show and Tell at the Winter Quarterly

A snowstorm delayed the first quarterly of the year until February 6.

We were treated to a presentation by Candance Perry, Curator of Collections of the Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center. She talked about Berlin Work and its similarities to other developing designs of the times.

We also enjoyed a great show-and-tell of finished projects.

Karen Schuler, Ann Warner, Melissa Levy, Judy Herdeg (in absentia), and Sue Scofield were installed as the 2018 officers.
