Newsflash: Change to the Chapter’s Executive Board: Bonnie Applebee is now the Chapter’s President. The board extends thanks to Marianne Jones for her service.

 

A big thank you to Sandra Grasso and all the other chapter members who helped on Memorial Day weekend ‘planting the seed’ of rug hooking at the Redlands Festival of Arts.

 

June Program: Open hooking…bring your work in progress! Or start something new! 

 

ALL HANDS ON DECK!!! Sign up to help demonstrate at the Lavender Festival in Cherry Valley June 9, 10 & 11, and June 16, 17, & 18. Speak to Sandra Grasso about volunteering! 

 

 Bonnie's-leaf-graphic How’s your Chapter Project ~ Hook-a-Leaf coming along? Participating Members receive a 20” x 20” piece of linen, and will hook a pattern of their choice (must feature a leaf, or leaves). Minimum hooked size is 8” x 8” but can be larger. No other rules!! Be creative and see what you can come up with! These projects will be featured at the October 21st Harvest Hook-in. 

 

Andspeaking of the Harvest Hook-in, it’s not too early to start thinking about Raffle Basket themes! If you aren’t interested in completing a basket, contributions of items (or $ for items) are gladly accepted! See Jane Artinian for raffle basket ideas!
