A Sweetheart of a deal. . .

We are very fortunate to be meeting in our new location at Grace Presbytery. The facility is lovely and the lighting is excellent! Anne W. cautioned members about entry requirements and encouraged all to be good stewards by leaving the room as we found it. The membership voted to make a donation to GP for their generosity in allowing us to use the building. Thanks, Grace Presbytery!

Upcoming workshops for TRSG in 2013:
Patrick's Woods - 3/15/13 - Garden Variety Long Pocket - please check the size of your silk and complete the pre-stitching before the workshop

Plum Street Samplers (Paulette Stewart) - 5/4/13 - mystery sampler designed for TRSG (perhaps in the style of the sampler she designed for the Shepherd's Bush Retreat below) - kit fee $125, plus teaching fee

Theron Traditions Needlework Designs (Catherine Theron) - 11/2/13 - Alphabet Long Pocket - no details at this time

Anne also asked for feedback and ideas for additional projects.

The February program began with Part 2 of MAGIC 2012. Jana K. and Cyndi S. were recipients of the drawings for gift certificates. Thanks to everyone who participated.
Marie Z. began leading the TRSG Proper Stitch SAL this evening. Lynn M. had completed the sampler and brought it to show everyone what they have to look forward to after hours and hours (and hours) of stitching. . .
