May Meeting

Something happened and the May meeting report disappeared, so I'm republishing it here.

For the last few months, we've been working on a series of projects our program chairman Georgette B. is calling a "Garden of Delights in a Basket." Georgette has been coming up with little needlework tool projects that we can put into a basket by our workspace. In May we began a Margaret Bendig-designed project called "Lacy Canvas Scissors Case." This is a Petite Project from EGA. We are stitching this on grey canvas with white threads. June's program will be about finishing this. The original design is finished into a closed scissor pocket but Georgette is giving us the option of lengthening the design and making a case that opens flat.

Come out and join us for our next meeting on June 20. We meet in the Community Room of the USBank building at Euclid and "D" Streets in Ontario, California. The doors open about 6:30 PM and the meeting starts at 7:00. Park behind the bank, walk to the back door, and you'll see our meeting room on the right. Everyone is welcome.

Also we'd love every stitcher around to join us at our monthly stitch-in on Wednesday, May 23 from 10 AM to 2 PM at Gingers Quilt Shop in Upland. The shop is located at 1120 Dewey Way # B, Upland, CA  91786, phone number 909-920-3099. To get there, get off the 10 freeway at Mountain Avenue in Upland, go north (toward the mountains), turn left at Foothill.  From the 210 freeway, get off at Mountain, turn south (away from the mountains)and turn right at Foothill. Once you're on Foothill, drive about 1 1/2 miles to the signal at Dewey. Turn right and there's the shop! Thank you, Ginger, for letting us meet there. We meet every 4th Wednesday through the year so mark your calendars. No, you don't have to be a member of our chapter or of any guild for this open stitch time, just bring your project and have some fun with other people who share your love of needlework.
