CALL FOR DISPLAY PIECES
CRVC has been invited to the Granby Public Library in November for our fourth
display there. This one is titled "We're Back! Recent Pieces from the
Embroiderers' Guild." The focus is on any pieces you've finished since March
2020. They can be any technique, any style, big (not TOO big), small,
intricate, simple. They can be from our Zoom workshops, or from your
old stash of kits and unfinished projects that you finally pulled out and
polished off, or original pieces. The only criterion is that you finished
them since the first pandemic lockdown.
We'll collect the pieces in October, and get them back home in December.
Most pieces will be displayed inside locked cases, so even the smallest ornaments
will be secure. For each piece, please provide the title, designer
(if known), your name, and any brief comments you want to make about it (i.e.
"I started this at a Region Day 15 years ago!"). You may loan us up
to three pieces (five if they're small).
If you've never participated in a display with us before, please consider
joining us in this one! Contact Kathryn Lord at firstname.lastname@example.org for
information about having your pieces picked up and returned.

For many years CRVC had
a library of needlework books. Several years ago, the decision was
made to disband the library and sell off the books. Many have been
sold, but many still remain and they can be seen on our website at
www.crvc-ega.org/library.html. If you would
like to purchase one or more of these titles, send an email to the chapter
librarian Judie Solomon at
ThisNeedle@aol.com with your bid
-- all reasonable offers will be accepted. We only ask that, in addition
to your donation, you pay the cost of mailing the book(s) to you via media

preceeding a general meeting. Thats where we come up with plans for
future meetings, so youll enjoy the fun of learning whats out
