May Stitch-in

From now on we will be hosting a community stitch-in at the Hobby Lobby in Upland on the second Monday of each month. Our thanks go to Hobby Lobby and the manager Meribel for letting us have the space.

Our next stitch-in will be on Monday May 13 from 10:00 - 4:30. Come anytime, stay for as long as you like. Bring your lunch or go out to one of the many food places in the area. Membership in the EGA is not necessary because this is open to ANYONE. Come by and have fun with us!

April Meeting

Our Program chairman presented us with an adorable heart tin topper design by Margaret Bendig.
While Margaret's design included a bonus chart for the heart on the left, our kit supplied thread for the heart on the right. Do you see the difference between the green on each heart? The one on the right is actually a two-sided italian cross while the one on the right is standard cross stitch.

The inside of each tin has an initial, too.

As usual, Georgette kitted up the project really well.

Here we all are, stitching away.

Our Show-and-Tell time included some little stitched gingerbread house ornaments from Ruth P. She also completed the ornament kit that was the chapter gift to our members. Denise M. also brought in her Rainforest Revisited stitched on congress cloth. Georgette B. showed off her Cleopatra's Cat stitched on black congress cloth.

We plan on being at Hobby Lobby in Upland on Monday, May 13 for a stitching time. Our next meeting will be on May 15 at 7:00 at the USBank building at Euclid and "D" Streets in Ontario, California. See you there!
