30 days hath September. . .

. . .and I almost let all of them slip away before I got this blog post up; how pathetic is that?

In Ann W.'s absence, Lynn E. reminded everyone of the Catherine Theron 2-day workshop coming up in November.  The deadline to sign up is September 15.

We have some great teaching opportunities coming up in the next 18 months. . .
Linda Lautenschlager, of Chessie and Me, is coming to teach in Spring 2014.  Dames of the Needle may teach a workshop in Fall 2014, and Ellen Chester, of With My Needle, will teach in Spring 2015.  How about that for an all-star line-up!

Marie Z. reminded everyone about upcoming programs:
October - Cyndi S. & Debbie G. teach the design and construction of the 2013 Tudor Rose Holiday Ornament
November - dedicated time to stitch on the Tudor Rose Sampler SAL, as well as the 2013 Holiday Ornament
 December - Holiday Party at Grace Presbytery

At the September meeting, Pam C. demonstrated how to embellish the crochet trim for small projects such as a pincushion.  Members brought a stitched, finished pincushion, to which they added button trim.
