Kick-off for our Year of Fun

Plan to join us for our first meeting, Thursday, September 15. Summer has ended and we are all excited to get back together and hear about the upcoming activities and stitching projects for this year. Two meetings are held at the Ladue Chapel, 9:30 and 6:30 pm. Check out the sidebar link Meetings and Stitch-Ins for more information. We are all looking forward to a very fun year.

September is our official kick-off meeting and during this September meeting, we are providing a fun free project, “Magnetically You.” ANG will be supplying all materials needed for all attendees -- members and guests. After you complete your project, you will have a wonderful gift to take home and use to organize your needlepoint magnets or other special trinkets.

Not only are we thinking about our members this year, we are also thinking about our community. This month we are continuing our goodwill for a 5th grade classroom at Koch Elementary School in the Riverview Gardens School District in St. Louis, Missouri. Please bring any of the following supplies or $5.00 cash or Target or Office Max gift cards. Hope you can help to support our philanthropy project. Requested items: Markers, Dry erase markers, pencils, pens, filler or computer paper, spiral notebooks, scotch tape, composition books

Come join the fun and sigh-up for our activities and stitching projects. There is a lot planned for our Fun Year ahead.
Hope to see you at our meetings this year!!
