    I would like to thank Jamie Eves and Bev York for the tour that NELG members took on Saturday.  I, for one, learned from the presentations so it was well worth the trip.  For those who could not come today, it is a small museum with a lot of impact.

    I plan to be driving down from eastern MA to the Windham Textile Museum visit in CT.  If anyone would like to join me, please let me know.  We can arrange a convenient meetup point.  It's always more fun with a few people in the car! -- Bryce

    Time to pick up entries already. Thank you to all who entered and all who were there to demo. Jane and her team of volunteers make the process go so smoothly. They really appreciate us sharing our beautiful pieces and talking about it too. It's worth finishing the pieces, adding careful mounting and framing . Next year be ready. Nelgbige coordinator.

    Big E entries August 2 - 15 are $10. There were less entries last year than previous years so try to complete your projects. Also, sign up to demo before the end of August so your complimentary entry and parking passes can be picked up when dropping off entries.

    I saw this on the White Threads blog today.  While it is relatively short, it does give you some idea of how DMC embroidery threads are made.  The video is in French with English subtitles.  See:
