Monthly Chapter Meeting Programs & Workshops 

We will be making a Victorian woven button, the "Victorian Flag" at our March neeting. Both the black and turquoise buttons in the picture are this design. The other buttons are "Star Shirtwaist" buttons. Directions will be provided for the Star Shirtwaist buttons for "self-study" or to review at the New Kid on April 4th. Instructions will be provided for several different flowers that work nicely with button centers.

Not many supplies will be needed for either button. Many of you will already have the #5 pearl cotton on hand. A button form and black lining fabric will be provided for the Victorian Flag button. Feel free to bring your own lining fabric, if you wish. A one-inch ring will be provided for the Star Shirtwaist button.

Materials for Victorian Flag button:

  • 1-inch button form (provided)
  • 4-inch square of lightweight lining fabric (black will be provided)
  • DMC #5 pearl cotton (approximately 1.5 yards) in your choice of color
  • #24 tapestry needle
  • #7 embroidery or crewel needle
  • sewing needle
Materials for Star Shirtwaist button:
  • 1-inch ring (provided)
  • scrap of sandpaper (provided)
  • DMC #5 pearl cotton (approximately 1.5 yards) in your choice of color

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.
