We are planning to hold our October meeting at Thistle Needleworks, 506 Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield, CT.  The dates for meetings will be the first Saturdays of the even months, except August.
Directions to the store are on the Thistle Needleworks website.

Saturday, October 2nd, 2021          Crewel Project and Rozashi Plans

At this time we hope that this meeting will take place in person at Thistle Needleworks.  There are several copies of the same crewel kits that were donated for our use.  We plan to give one to each participant with the hope each person will interpret it with their own choices of stitches and colors.  Judie Solomon will review a variety of crewel stitches and their execution.  The plan is that each of us will bring her piece to the December meeting so that we can share our individual approaches.

During the afternoon, supplies and instructions will be available for choosing a Rozashi project and kitting up the threads and fabrics needed to complete the project.  We will prepare the Ro (fabric) by gluing it to an appropriate frame so that you are set to begin the stitching.  The instructions are projects designed and taught by Ginny Currie, and the materials are available because of her donation to our chapter.  Our aim is to share the chosen projects at the February meeting.

Location:  Thistle Needleworks in Wethersfield, CT
Schedule for Saturday:
                10am to 12:30pm   Crewel Project with guidance from Judie Solomon
              **Please bring a bag lunch as we have limited time for a break**
  1pm to 1:30pm   Show and Tell, and short meeting
  1:30pm to 3:30pm   Preparing Rozashi piece

A coupon is provided for this meeting.  The deadline for registration is September 25.

Saturday, December 4th, 2021      Snowflake Ornament Class
            Piloting new design with Vicky Witterschein via Zoom

Vicky has asked if we would be willing to pilot this new design at our December meeting.  As you may recall, she taught another ornament class to several members of NER recently.  This class instruction should be completed in about two hours, but we will be starting it at 9 a.m. to accommodate her schedule.  The only cost for participants is the kit fee of $20.  Please fill out the coupon soon so we will know the number of kits to be prepared.

A coupon is provided for this meeting.  The deadline for registration is November 1.

"The Stitches That Bind Us"
April 30 – May 1, 2022

This will be a no-frills seminar.  You should be receiving your brochure via email shortly as there will be no mailing of physical copies.

This seminar is co-hosted by our chapter and Pioneer Valley Chapter, so as we get closer to the date, we’ll be asking for any helping hands who’d like to volunteer for little jobs.  So far from our chapter: Linda Berry will be the registrar; Deb Milvae will handle finance until November, when the next NER treasurer will take over, and then she’ll coordinate class angels; Lisa Green will make food arrangements; Linda Berry and Kathryn Lord will put together welcome packets for teachers and attendees.

We hope you’ll keep these dates on your calendar and plan to register as early as possible.
