Saturday's Meeting

February 20, 2011 11:45 PM | Deleted user

What a great meeting we had on Saturday.  It was the regular meeting of NELG held at the Joshua Hyde Library in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

Jil reported on the various events that are coming up - less than a month to get your registration in for Retreat!  Reports from Winann, our Treasurer, and from Barbara, our Member At Large. Elisabeth reported on our Library and yours truly piped up about our new FaceBook page.

Once the regular meeting was closed, Jill gave a brief presentation on the new Website.  Many thanks were offered to Jill (and me) for a great job done.  We have many other thoughts and ideas ready for the site - Just keep watching.

Carolyn Wetzel began our program on Croatian Lace - it was quite good to learn about three distinct laces made in that region - one was bobbin lace, the other two were needle laces, and one of them was made from the fiber of an aloe plant.  Truly unique.  Thanks Carolyn - great job!

If you haven't been to a meeting in a while - we miss you!  So why not mark your calendar for March 19th - same place - same time!

    I agree. I haven't been in a while and was really good. I'm so excited, from there I got the inspiration to start needle lacing. Love it.

      Good for you Linda!

      So glad you attended the meeting, Next month will be the continuation of the Romanian Lace. Always remember that you can just bring along your own project to work on.

      Everyone loves to share!

      Keep well - Patty
