What's New

Remember that dues are now paid annually by May 1st as the membership year runs from June 1 to May 31.  Please use the membership coupon to renew your membership as soon as possible.

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

With vaccinations rolling out and continued observation of prevention protocols, it's looking good for our hoped-for NER Seminar!

Here is where we stand:  National approved our logo design and theme, and an agreement was reached with the Sheraton Hartford in Rocky Hill, so we can now solicit teachers and start publicizing the event.  A budget will be developed soon.

We're aiming for a no-frills seminar, since the EGA National Seminar in Boston is on track for 2023 and many in the region will be involved with that.  We plan on 6 teachers and Studio Time, a familiar format.

This seminar will be co-hosted by PVC and CRVC, 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.

So, fingers crossed, folks, and we hope to see you in person in 2022!

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 on this web site, listed both alphabetically by title -- www.crvc-ega.org/library/librarybooksbytitle.html -- and alphabetically by author -- www.crvc-ega.org/library/librarybooksbyauthor.html.  If you are interested in one or more titles, please contact the chapter librarian Judie Solomon at ThisNeedle@aol.com with the title(s) and the price you are willing to pay for each title.  Once you are notified that the books are yours, please arrange to pick them up at Thistle Needleworks.  If you prefer to have your book(s) mailed to you, please let the librarian know and you will be informed how much the postage will be (via Media Mail).

If all the books are not distributed to members, they will be offered to other chapters and other EGA members.

CRVC Board Meetings

During 2021, some Board Meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of odd-numbered months and some will be held on Saturday immediately preceeding a general meeting.  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.
