Monthly Chapter Meeting Programs & Workshops 
July 17, 2014
"A Lattice Garden"
Lattice Stitch

The July program is Lattice Garden. Lattice work is a filling stitch. It can be worked on all types of fabric with all types of thread, floss, pearl cotton, or coton a broder. I used 28 -count linen and coton a broder. I learned about lattice work, which is something that I had not done before. Once I got started, it was a really fun piece to work. There is information on Mary Corbet's website. There is a link in the lower left sidebar. - Elizabeth O'Neill

"Garden Greetings"
Needle Tatting


Come try your hand at needle tatting flowers for a greeting card. This program from Heartland Region will be taught by Marge Dickmeyer and Nancy Sutherland. All materials will be provided for you.

September 18, 2014
"Garden of Gems"
Beaded Napkin Rings

Sign up for the September program at the July or August meeting or by sending the form in the newsletter.
Kits will be available to make two napkin rings for $3.25. There are two different color choices for accent beads. The base beads, larger beads and seed beads will be the same for red or black napkin ring color choices. (The beads may be slightly different than shown.)
Contact: Pat Nauman
Deadline to order kits: August 21, 2014
Additional Stitching Time
(Just in case you need more ...)
On our regular general meeting days, the 3rd Thursday of the month, we are able to stay and use our meeting site for open stitching until we set up for our evening meeting. Bring a sack lunch to the morning meeting and stay or go out for lunch and return. How long you want to stitch is your prerogative. It will also be a great time to start working on the monthly programs. Can we ever get too much stitching time with friends? I think not. Hope to see you there.
 
Correspondence Courses
Our chapter sponsors two correspondence courses every year which means there are many other courses that we will not be offering to our membership. Individuals or small groups of EGA members are always welcome to pay the $175 registration fee and work on any project currently offered by EGA.
 
The next correspondence course is being selected. If you have questions, please contact Linda Norris.

There are also opportunities for individuals to sign up for select classes every month for the low registration fee of $30. Check out the recent Inside EGA newsletter or the EGA website for registration information.

 
Workshops

Cedar Valley Chapter welcomes new members who are interested in participating in workshops sponsored by the chapter.

 

If you are an EGA member, you can join Cedar Valley Chapter for $7, and Heartland Region for $2 (if you aren't already a member of our region). If you are not an EGA member, you can join our chapter, region and EGA for $48.
