Registration is closed

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, our September meeting will be virtual using Zoom. A link will be sent out to all members prior to the meeting. If you are not a member but are interested in attending, please register for this event.

Our program will include:
  • A short business meeting to approve the budget
  • Announcements about upcoming programs with NELG
  • Announcements about some exciting lace-related opportunities from other organizations
  • A chance to put your virtual raffle ticket in the virtual bag (for a drawing to be held in June 2021)
  • Time for us to work together on our contributions to the Ronald McDonald House Trees of Hope Festival.
For the Tree of Hope project, Jill would like donations of lace strips by mid-November at the latest. Our theme this year is “Lace FANtasy” and our tree will be decorated with colored paper fans trimmed with handmade lace. Here’s what Jill needs:
  • The lace should be white, and could be any type of lace
  • The strip needs to be 1/2" wide and 8" long for each fan. If you prefer, you can make one long length that can be used for more than one fan; I can cut it into the required length, but will need some extra to turn in on each end - so please make each “repeat” a little longer (maybe 8½”)
  • Please tie off the threads but do not trim the threads close – leave at least 2”
  • Strips should be mailed to Jill Hawkins.
