What's New

  The dates for chapter meetings in 2022 will be the first Saturdays of the even months, except August.  Some of the meetings will be at Thistle Needleworks, 506 Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield, CT.  Click here for directions to the Thistle Needleworks store.

CRVC has been invited to the Granby Public Library in November for our fourth display there.  This one is titled "We're Back! Recent Pieces from the Embroiderers' Guild." The focus is on any pieces you've finished since March 2020.  They can be any technique, any style, big (not TOO big), small, intricate, simple.  They can be from our Zoom workshops, or from your old stash of kits and unfinished projects that you finally pulled out and polished off, or original pieces.  The only criterion is that you finished them since the first pandemic lockdown.
We'll collect the pieces in October, and get them back home in December.  Most pieces will be displayed inside locked cases, so even the smallest ornaments will be secure.  For each piece, please provide the title, designer (if known), your name, and any brief comments you want to make about it (i.e. "I started this at a Region Day 15 years ago!").  You may loan us up to three pieces (five if they're small).
If you've never participated in a display with us before, please consider joining us in this one!  Contact Kathryn Lord at hglord@cox.net for information about having your pieces picked up and returned.

CRVC Library

For many years CRVC had a library of needlework books.  Several years ago, the decision was made to disband the library and sell off the books.  Many have been sold, but many still remain and they can be seen on our website at www.crvc-ega.org/library.html.  If you would like to purchase one or more of these titles, send an email to the chapter librarian Judie Solomon at JudieStichr@aol.com with your bid -- all reasonable offers will be accepted.  We only ask that, in addition to your donation, you pay the cost of mailing the book(s) to you via media mail.
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 offered there.
You make a purchase at a really good price and benefit the chapter at the same time.

CRVC Board Meetings

During 2022, CRVC Board Meetings will be held via Zoom on the first or second Tuesday of odd-numbered months.  Contact Judie Solomon at JudieStichr@aol.com or 860-633-7281 if you want a Zoom invitation to these meetings.  See the Master Calendar for actual meeting dates and location.

CRVC Bylaws

The CRVC Chapter Bylaws (Revised 2013) are available for viewing.

Here’s a call to all members..................we would love to have others assume some of the jobs for our chapter. They are NOT big jobs, just some "pitching in" to help with short term needs. Hopefully you can attend our board meetings on the second Tuesdays of odd-numbered months or on Saturday immediately preceeding a general meeting. That’s where we come up with plans for future meetings, so you’ll enjoy the fun of learning what’s out there.

Please contact Lisa (klisagreen@yahoo.com) if you would like to help.
