During the month of August, we've got a display at the downtown Cedar Rapids Public Library on the second floor in the hallway that goes to the skywalk. The next time you visit the library be sure to stop by. The pieces were selected to show a wide variety of needlework techniques. Information about Cedar Valley Chapter and Through the Needle's Eye is included in the display.

From August 6 to October 8, Cedar Valley Chapter of the Emboiderers' Guild of America, Inc. and the Marion Heritage Center will be hosting "Through the Needle's Eye", the Embroiderers' Guild of America 20th National Exhibit. The Marion Heritage Center is open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Download THIS Adobe PDF file with details.

 
Monthly Chapter Meeting Programs & Workshops 
September 15, 2016
"Peyote Play"
Peyote Fob

Following instructions provided in a "Petite Project" from EGA, we will be creating a beaded scissor fob using the peyote stitch. Various techniques for starting the peyote stitch will be presented. If you have never had an opportunity to try the peyote stitch, now is the time.

Kits containing all the needed supplies (except scissors) should be pre-ordered by September 8, 2016. They are $3.00 each.

    Kit contents:
  • 3 colors of Delica beads
  • accent beads (accent beads may vary slightly depending on availability at the time of kit assembly)
  • needle, thread, and a small beading mat.

Please email or snail-mail your order to Romeyn Jekins by September 8th.

 
Correspondence Courses

Great news! A new Group Correspondence Course has been chosen -- it will be "Isabella -- Italian Drawn Thread." Eighteen people have indicated interest in taking this course! We plan to work on this course to the end of the year, and then proceed with the next course, "Beginning Teneriffe Lace," after the first of the year, since 15 people have already shown interest in it.

Click on the link in the lower left sidebar and scroll down to Isabella.

Our Cedar Valley Chapter will pay the $175 class fee, and each participant will pay the $42 text fee. If anyone wants to volunteer to lead the class, her/his text fee will be waived. If anyone else is interested in this course, there are a few spaces (3) left -- let me know. Hoping to receive your check soon so we can get started. Thanks.
Sheri Ekstrom, GCC Chairman

 

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.

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.
