Sego Lily Chapter Birthday Party Time

It is time to mark you calendars, think about what you want to bring for a pot luck dish and get ready to celebrate Sego Lily Chapter.

We will celebrate on June 28, 2018 at 6:30 PM (or when you can get to Alice R’s house). We are celebrating with a pot luck dinner so bring something to share. Beverages and plates and such will be provided.

If you have family or friends you would like to introduce to Sego Lily Chapter and EGA please, bring them. Our Chapter does need to grow so if we can interest family and/or friends in EGA and what we do then that would be great all the way around. We welcome anyone interested in embroidery so all are welcome.

This year let’s do a Show and Tell that includes what you have finished since June 2017 and even what you are working on currently. Haven’t started a project because you think you cannot manage to finish it? Bring it and get encouragement to get going on that piece that called to you.

May Meeting and Dues Payment is Due.

It is time to start thinking about our meeting this month. While we are still looking for a more permanent location for our meeting we are trying another location this month. We will meet a bit earlier as well in order to use the room. So, we will meet May 24, 2018 at 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM in the Study Room at the Holladay Library which is located at 2150 East Murray-Holladay Road.

We have a change in program and we will work on the GCC Beaded Necklace.

Remember your dues checks for $48.00 need to be paid by May 15, 2018. Please see your email reminder for the meeting this month for the address to send your check.

We hope to see everyone at the meeting this month and get those dues payments in so you do not miss out on Sego Lily and EGA events and opportunities.

April Meeting and Dues Payments Are Due

We meet this month on April 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM and we will be back at the Whitmore Library in Study Room A. The program is open stitch so you can bring whatever you want to work on this month. I could use some help on the beading GCC as I am not doing well on this one. (Beading has not really been my forte, ever, so help, please.)

For anyone who wants to go to dinner before the meeting we can meet at The Blue Lemon on Highland Drive. The service was quite fast last time we met there so we can meet for dinner at 5:45-6:00 and still have time to get to the meeting on time. Let me know, please, if you will be coming for dinner so I can find a large enough table for our group.

Remember your dues, please. We need to have 15 members in order to keep our charter. We would love to have new members and this is a great time to get family and friends to join us as it is the start of a new year as far as paying dues goes. We always welcome visitors at our meeting and hope they will decide to become members.

I hope to see everyone at the meeting this month and join us for dinner if you are able.

Sego Lily Chapter Programs 2018

We have a schedule of programs for Sego Lily Chapter for 2018.

We welcome guests and new members at every meeting of Sego Lily Chapter. Please let your friends and family know of meetings that may be of interest to them.

April – Open Stitch Bring something you want to spend some time with or if you need some help with a stitch.

May – How to Read a Counted Canvas Chart with Stasha. Our leader for this program will have an ornament design charted for counted cross stitch and one for canvas.

July – Christmas in July. Alice R. will have two Christmas Snowflake Ornament designs for us. Watch for more information and come to future meeting to see the ornaments in person.

August – We are planning a trip to Shepherd’s Bush and Needlepoint Joint on Saturday August 18, 2018 and then we will meet for our regular meeting August 23, 2018 to share all the treasures we brought home for the railroad trip. We had so much fun with this trip last year we want to make it an annual event. Shopping at needle art shops and lunch with friends, it doesn’t get any better than this.

September – Will bring us another Hardanger class where we will learn eyelets and cutting.

October – Annual Holiday Stitch. Bring whatever you want to finish for the Holiday season. Halloween, Hanukkah, Christmas, or the holiday you want to celebrate.

November – No meeting on Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy the day with family and friends and food, don’t forget the food we all enjoy sharing.

This is our schedule for our meetings for a while. Please share with anyone who is interested in embroidery and EGA. We welcome all persons with an interest in the needle arts.

March Board Meeting and Regular Business Meeting

President, Alice S. is holding the quarterly board meeting at 6:00 PM with the regular meeting to follow at 7:00 PM. We will eat while we have the board meeting as Alice says there is not much to discuss. Remember the Board is all elected officers and committee chairmen with the meeting open to all members. Only Executive Board members and committee chairmen can vote at the Board Meeting.

The program for this month is a beginning Hardanger class. I had sent the supply list earlier but, I am including it again just to make sure you have the information.

Fabric: I would suggest 25 count Lugano but, any even weave fabric will do as long as it is not Aida. Aida will just not work for Hardanger due to the way the Aida is woven. If you use a 24-25 count fabric it is easier to see what you are doing and to count correctly.

Thread: You will be using Pearle Cotton in two different sizes and the sizes depend on the fabric you choose.

24 count fabric or less use #5 and #8 Pearle Cotton

25 count fabric or more use #8 and #12 Pearle Cotton


Tapestry needles #22 and/or #24

Bring your Basics and Beyond book. For those of you who ordered the books I will bring your copies to the meeting. Once I have the books with the invoice I will send you an email with your cost, including shipping and you may pay me by check or cash at the meeting.

February Meeting Date and Location

This month we are trying out another location for our meeting.

The meeting will be Thursday, February 22, 2018 at 7:00 PM. This month we will be at the Whitmore Library located at:

2197 E. Ft. Union Boulevard
Cottonwood Heights, Utah 84121

The Library closes promptly at 9:00 PM so we must be finished, cleaned up and out of the Library on time.

Our program will be an open stitch so you can work on whatever you want. We have a couple of new chairmen who are going to be taking care of Programs and Education. Rachel and Debra will be taking on these jobs so be sure to thank them and let’s all be ready to help them any way we can. Thank you Debra and Rachel for stepping up to fill these positions.

We welcome visitors and guests to our meetings. Some projects and seminars have additional fees for non-members. We hope to welcome visitors and guest as members of Sego Lily Chapter and EGA.

Just a first reminder that we will need to plan to pay dues in the next few months. Our dues are $48.00 for the year. Remember this amount covers Local Chapter dues, RMR dues, National dues, and The Needlearts magazine. If we can pay our dues by the April meeting our Treasurer, Stasha, will be able to have all the information completed and monies mailed to RMR and National in May. By paying your dues by April it will make it easier to get everything submitted on time. Thanks for planning ahead.

See you all at the Whitmore Library on the 22nd of February.
