Thanksgiving once again

November 25, 2015 9:54 AM | Sharon Sacco (Administrator)

We had a busy demonstration period this fall.  Now it has wound down and been replaced by holiday season.  There is so much to be thankful for as we reflect upon our lives.  So here is my NELG list:

  1. I am thankful for everyone who joined the demonstrations this fall.  We managed to cover nearly every day at the Big E as well as Old Sturbridge Village and Plimouth Plantation that overlapped it.  We are not a huge group, and I am always amazed that we manage to cover everything at once.
  2. I am thankful that we have so many small groups that meet outside of the NELG meetings in Sturbridge.  These smaller groups help to promote lace by connecting people who love lace.  Often this allows members who cannot travel to Sturbridge to connect with the group.  It also lets people who are just starting out on a technique to get informal help from others.
  3. I am thankful that Jim, our VP, has put together a great schedule for us this year.  Our "field trip" on October was great fun, and I think we learned a lot about silk in New England.
  4. I am thankful for Jill in England who continues to support us by maintaining our website.  She does a wonderful job of it, and I think we have one of the best as a result of her work.
  5. I am thankful for all of you who do travel to Sturbridge for the NELG meetings.  The last one was a very large meeting which was great, but even those very small meetings are important.
So enjoy your meal tomorrow.  I know the holidays will be busy for most of us, but if you can, please come to the December meeting.  We will be celebrating the season with an optional gift exchange which is always fun as well as lots of food.  To make it easier to fit into your schedule (we hope), it has been moved to the second Saturday, December 12.  I hope to see a lot of you there.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
