PROGRAMS: A program is offered at most meetings as an important part of our needlework education. The program may consist of a small project taught by one of our members, a new stitch demonstration, continuing project such as a sampler, or a guest speaker.
WORKSHOPS: Workshops are offered at various times during the year. A visiting teacher or a chapter member may teach them.
CORRESPONDENCE COURSES: These courses are offered by EGA and are explained in the Educational supplement distributed with your Needlearts magazine.
CHALLENGE: The President proposes a Challenge each year, and participation is optional. She chooses a theme, and the challenge is your adaption of that theme. The Challenge project are due at the Founder’ Day celebration in June.
UFO: UFO’s (Unfinished Objects) are a way to urge stitchers to finish project they have started during the year. Each member who wishes to participate gives the President a list of the projects he/she feels they can finish by the June meeting, and brings the finished project to the Needlework display at Founder’s Day. Recognition and rewards are given for the finished projects, and small fines (to the Treasury as a fund raiser) are imposed for each item still unfinished.
POT LUCK: We have a Pot Luck lunch quarterly in September, December at the Christmas Party, March, and June at Founder’s Day.
FOUNDER’S DAY: This is the yearly celebration of our anniversary. We have a potluck lunch, birthday cake, turn in our Challenge projects and UFO’s, receive awards, enjoy a fantastic needlework show, and reveal our Secret Stitchers.
Holiday Party: The Holiday party is held at the home of one of the member’s home on meeting day in December. We have pot luck lunch, have a very exciting Gift Exchange and enjoy a holiday celebration together. Details are provided as the events draws near.
