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.

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

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

Needles:

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.

January Meeting and Bead Shopping

As you know we are in the process of deciding where to meet in the future since CUMC is now wanting to charge for the room use. Since we have not had a meeting where we can discuss this as a group Alice S. and some of the other Executive Board decided to have the January meeting elsewhere. Alice S. has offered her wonderful "Girl Cave" for this meeting. We are looking at meeting at the Millcreek Library in February as that would give us a second location to try out. This situation will be discussed at the meeting this month so if at all possible please plan to attend.

We will meet on January 24, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the home of Alice S.The program will be to start work on the CGG beading project. If you are not taking the GCC please come and bring a project of your choice to work on. Or just come for the friendship and conversation (when Kathleen is not teaching, of course).

Anyone wanting to go to dinner we thought that it would be fun to go to Lettuce and Ladles at: 2268 E 3300 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84109. We can meet around 5:30 PM and that will give us time for dinner and conversation.

This will be a great time to get together after all the holidays and see our friends, work on new projects or continue on previous ones.

Remember, Tuesday, January 16 at 7:00 PM everyone taking the GCC will meet at Heart Beads so we can purchase the supplies for the GCC. Heart Beads is located at: 6054 South State Street.

Sego Lily Holiday Party

Our holiday party is coming soon so I wanted to send a reminder to you all. The party is on Friday December 8, 2017 at 6:30 PM at the home of Alice S. We will have a potluck dinner followed by a stash exchange. Please, bring a dish of something in the line of food to share for dinner and bring all those stash items that you know you will never finish or start or just wonder why you bought that in the first place as it is way more difficult than you expected and exchange for something you really do want and know you will finish.

Come and enjoy a great start to the holiday season with you stitching friends.

HOLIDAY PARTY FOR SEGO LILY CHAPTER

Yes, we are having a Holiday Party in December so save the date: Friday, December 8, 2017 at 6:30 PM at the home of Alice S.

We are going to have our traditional potluck dinner so plan on bringing goodies and remember we do not assign courses so you can bring whatever you want to share with the group. It is always fun to see what everyone brings and it is always a tasty assortment of good thing to eat.

We will have a stash exchange but, not a raffle this year. How this works is you bring stash you know you will never stitch or finish or don’t like anymore and trade it for something you would rather stitch. Sounds fun doesn’t it? Now you get to go mark your calendar to save the date and time. We all know how the holiday schedule fills up.

Remember to bring family and friends as they are always welcome at Sego Lily meetings and parties. This is a great time to introduce them to Sego Lily Chapter and EGA.
