Program: DVD - Italian Stitching, State Fair Warm Up and People's Choice Contest

Cost: Free!

Reservation Deadline: No reservations required.

DVD - Italian Stitching: We will watch a DVD entitled "Italian Needlework Treasure" with commentary by Vima Micheli, a very well known and talented Italian stitcher, teacher, and guide for Italian stitching tours. Kathryn Nerison, will add comments and show needlework items from her trip to Italy.

State Fair Warm Up: We encourage everyone to enter multiple pieces in the State Fair. Bring the project(s) you are working on and take advantage of the stitching time. REMINDER: State Fair entry is on-line or mail-in only this year—there are no walk-in entries. The registration deadline is August 7, 2018. There is no cost to register on-line, and there is no penalty if you register but then do not enter your piece. So why not enter this year?

People's Choice Awards: July morning and evening meetings will feature a contest with a "fabulous prize" for each meetings' winner. Any member interested should bring an item of finished needlework to each or both meet-ings. All members attending that day will vote for a favorite, and the item that receives the most votes will earn its maker a prize. Members can only enter one item per meeting, and can reenter the same piece or different piece at the second July meeting. Good luck to all who enter this contest!
