A Message from Our President

Dear ECNG Members,

It is with great regret that I once again cancel our monthly meeting, originally scheduled for May 6th.  We are all still staying at home, protecting ourselves, our friends, and our families.

The Topsfield church remains closed until further notice. These are sad times for all of us. Rest assured however, that your Board is working hard to find a way to keep us all together in one way or another and hope to have something innovative in place for our June 3rd meeting. 

There has been amazing behind the scene work by many to automate our survey, our voting, and our membership renewal. I urge you to fill out the survey, vote, and pay your dues using the new, tech savvy way!

Stay in, stay safe, and knit, crochet, and sew on.  I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations!

Betsy Black, ECNG President

Dear ECNG Members,
In light of the recent developments related to precautionary measures to contain the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and our focus on the health and safety of our members our board has made the decision to cancel the April 1st General Membership Meeting and accompanying workshop. Workshop participants will receive a full refund via check issued within the next two weeks. We are working with Kris Poor of Poorhouse Designs to reschedule her lecture and workshop for the 2020-2021 year and look forward to announcing a new date once confirmed

We will carefully be monitoring the situation and will be looking at the April Bus Trip and May meeting as well to be potentially postponed; we will keep you advised in the coming weeks.

We will also be posting daily on our Facebook page with ideas for creative projects to help beat cabin fever.

In the meantime we encourage you to be safe and stay in to work on some of your amazing projects to bring to the Show and Tell table when we meet again.
