UPDATE ON NER SEMINAR 2022
"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
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!
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 --
-- and alphabetically by author --
If you are interested in one or more titles, please contact the chapter librarian
Judie Solomon at
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
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

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.
