Stitching the Bottom of the Ort Box and Show off Valentine Bargello This month members will exhibit their finished valentine bargello projects. Additionally, we will have a detailed discussion regarding stitching the bottom of the ort box (Areas 14-18). Finishing the ort box will take place next year!

Gateway Chapter
Kit and Caboodle Bag

New giveaway program for all members – attend three Chapter functions in the next year starting in May 2014 and receive a free “Kit and Caboodle” bag. A Chapter function is defined as a meeting, a workshop, a retreat, a luncheon, or a stitch-in.

Our giveaway “Kit and Caboodle” bag is a great little bag with plastic zipper compartments that can hold many different types of items – threads, stitching notions, make-up, etc. – thus the name “Kit and Caboodle”.

The giveaway year runs from May 2014 through April 2015. At meetings, be sure that you sign the log book so that your name can be recorded for attendance and counted toward your bag. We will also be keeping attendance logs at the other Chapter functions. Your Board wants to thank you for supporting your Chapter.

Don’t miss out on this great giveaway!
