These officers will be working hard for the success of our Sego Lily Chapter so be sure to thank them for serving as officers.

This is a basic linen class so it should be a good refresher for anyone who has not stitched on linen or even weave fabric for a while. If you are comfortable stitching on linen please bring your own project to work on during the meeting.

February Board meeting and Regular meeting

This month is an exciting meeting as we will be starting work on the design for a Sego Lily Chapter name tag. So bring paper, pencils, alphabet books and your ideas for what you think should be on our Chapter name tag. If you have a name tag(or more than one) bring it/them so everyone can see all the ideas that have been used for name tags.

Our meeting date is February 23, 2017 at Christ United Methodist Church (CUMC), Room 101A. CUMC is located at 2375 East 3300 South and parking is in the rear of the building. The regular meeting begins at 7:00 PM. The Board will meet one hour before our regular meeting so if you are a board member be at CUMC at 6:00 PM.This should be a good meeting for both the regular meeting and the board meeting.

Since we are having the Board meeting prior to the regular meeting we will skip going to dinner first since that would really make it difficult to get dinner and ve at the board meeting on time.

Remember every member is welcome to attend the board meetings.

See all of you on Thursday, February 23, 2017

Sego Lily Holiday Celebration

Before we get to far into 2017 we will have a celebration get together in December. We are doing this early enough into the month that we hope to have a large group turn out for a fun evening of friendship. We will meet at the home of Alice R. on December 9, 2016 at 6:30 PM. PLEASE NOTE – THIS IS A FRIDAY EVENING NOT OUR USUAL THURSDAY TIME. We decided that a Friday evening would give more time for us to enjoy time together. Everyone is asked to bring a pot luck something to share. Alice R. will provide all the paper products, utensils and beverages.

We will, also, have a Stash Exchange so bring those stash items that are in need of a new home so another member can help re-home some of your stash and you can help others by re-homing something they brought. This is a great time to really go through you stash and decide what designs or projects you really want to focus on and what just is not going to move up in the rotation. You may be surprised at what you find that just must go home with you.

Put the date on your schedule right now and plan on bringing something to share for dinner and something for the Stash Exchange. Hope to see you all at the Party.
