On August 15, 2016, the Fort Worth Chapter EGA was honored to host Kathleen Brown for a talk on Celebrating Vintage Aprons. Kathleen has a wonderful collection of aprons and gave us some interesting history and tid-bits about aprons over the years. She will be displaying her apron collection at the North Richland Hills Public Library Community Center on Friday and Saturday, November 11 and 12, 2016. This would be a worthwhile outing! In the meantime, enjoy these photos of some of the aprons she brought to share with us. You can read Kathleen's Apron Story and share a story of your own at www.myapronstory.com.
Our members who attended the 2016 SCR Seminar in Dallas reported having a really good time. Thanks to Sherri Hagar and her team for their work on our chapter’s fund-raising stash sale. Attendance at seminars should be on your bucket list – a remarkable experience to learn new things, meet new people, and spend your money on more stitching stuff!
Members Only appreciation offsite, “Have Needle - Will Travel” will take place on July 30th. See page 4 for more. Thank you again members, who contributed to our needlework display at the church. It was a resounding
success with positive feedback from the public, got us a new member, and put us in the SCR newsletter! Yippee!
Thanks also to those who supported Demonstration Day at Log Cabin Village in June. Those folks really appreciate our input and its a venue to show the public what we do.
Well, it’s onward and upward as we move from the history making rainfall and floods into the hot days of summer. Keep cool and hope you get a lot of stitching done. See you at the Offsite!
Happy stitching, Zip
