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
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
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
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.
During 2023, CRVC Board
Meetings will be held via Zoom on the first or second Tuesday of odd-numbered
months. All members are welcome.

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. Thats where we come up with plans for
future meetings, so youll enjoy the fun of learning whats out
if you would like to help.
