What's New

  The date of the September 2023 Board Meeting has been changed from
Tuesday, September 12 to Monday, September 11 -- still at 10 am

The dates for chapter meetings in 2023 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.

Simsbury Display

Please take the opportunity to visit our display at the Simsbury Public Library through the end of May.  The space in Simsbury is larger than in Granby and is entirely within locked cases that are 54 inches tall with many movable shelves.  This was a chance to show off some of our larger pieces, as well as our smaller ones!

Since this is a space new to us, the only "theme" was some of our favorites, pieces we were especially proud of, whether they were EGA classes or commercial kits or our own designs, no matter when they were finished.  Pieces will be returned during our June 10, 2023 meeting at Thistle Needleworks, Wethersfield.

CRVC Fund-Raising

For many years CRVC had a library of needlework books.  Several years ago, the decision was made to dissolve the library and sell off the books.

The remaining books from the CRVC library, as well as other books and needlepoint canvases that have been donated to the chapter, are now available for purchase.  The available items can be seen/ordered as listed below.

The proceeds from the sale of these items will come to CRVC with the funds going into the education fund.  You can make a purchase at a really good price and benefit the chapter at the same time.

CRVC Board Meetings

During 2023, CRVC Board Meetings will be held via Zoom on the first or second Tuesday of odd-numbered months.  All members are welcome.
Contact Judie Solomon at JudieStichr@aol.com or 860-633-7281 if you want a Zoom invitation to any 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.
