CRVC Library

Our CRVC Library has seen very little use in the last 5-10 years and therefore the Board has made the difficult decision to dissolve it.  Chapter members are being offered the first opportunity to purchase the books in the library with the funds going into the education fund.

The list of books in the library is presented both alphabetically by author and alphabetically by title.  If you are interested in one of more titles, please contact the chapter librarian Judie Solomon at JudieStichr@aol.com with the title(s) and the price you are willing to pay for that title.  Once you are notified that the books are yours, please arrange to pick them up at Thistle Needleworks or, if you prefer, to have your book(s) mailed to you.

Many of the books from the CRVC Library, as well as many others that have been donated to CRVC, are now available for purchase at
store.apneedlearts.com/tobenefitcrvc.html. In addition to the books, a large collection of hand-painted canvases that have been donated to the chapter are also offered there.

A few years ago there was an addition to the CRVC Library, thanks to Lisa Green.  It is a project booklet from EGA, the proceeds of which are going to CAP (www.childrensalopeciaproject.org).
  'Joy of Summer' by Sylvia Murariu      

It is entitled Joy of Summer, by Sylvia Murariu, and encompasses a variety of surface embroidery techniques, all quite basic.  The picture is a summer hat embellished with flowers, beads, and sequins.  (It does not include any of the Romanian lace for which this teacher is known.)
