June 7th Meeting

Essex County Needlecraft Guild June 
Our Spring luncheon will take place on June 7 and will be open to members only. We will be sharing coffee/tea and pre-lunch crackers and cheese, breads, fruit, etc., followed by a delicious cold lunch of shrimp/meat plates, quiches, veggies, fruits, salads, sandwiches and finally desserts. Most of you signed up to bring something at the May meeting. If you did not, just bring what you would like to. There will be no ovens. Your contributions should be table ready and labeled if they contain nuts or gluten. Please arrive by 9:45 to get your contribution to the kitchen. If you are inclined, include a recipe that people could copy.

There will be a silent auction and a live auction. If you wish to offer an item or a service, we encourage you to do so. The auction is one of the main sources of income for the guild.  Donated Items do not have to be in the category of needlework.  They can include plants (with care instructions), books, baked goods, kits, or completed needlework. Offers to conduct a workshop like beading, or knitting, or other such skills are very desirable and make good live auction offerings.

Thinking ahead to the September meeting, the Speaker will be Ann Lainhart. She will discuss fussy cutting. Her workshop will be the covers from the notebooks that drew such attention at the Christmas meeting. There are 15 places and the kit is $15.

Pat Lucey and Maggie Judd will be introducing the raffle Quilt for the 2018 Anniversary Tea. You are reminded to seek out the signup sheet for the Anniversary Tea and to select a task. Also,  please complete your membership form and pay your dues.

April 5th : Janice Bye

Janice has been an avid knitter for many years. She always took knitting with her whenever she took her 3 sons to the playground, and just never put down the needles. Janice met Judith Shadgold who was a local knitting designer, and this turned into a job where they were the US distributor of Manos Yarns. She could ship yarns to the stores, edit patterns and knit samples for both Judith and Jil Eaton. After almost 10 years, the yarn company was sold , so Janice continued with her passion. She has had patterns published in the One Skein Wonders series, and still knits samples and edits patterns. Janice is seldom without needles and yarn.
