President’s Message – Summer 2018

One half of the year has flown by… gone… over… in a blink of an eye! This year has seen many things come and go. Two of our members have moved… left us to make new friends… on an adventure. I feel an adventure is here for us… just waiting for us to turn the corner. Let us take time to enjoy ourselves! Is there something you have always wanted to make or to do? Is there room to make a new friend… or two?

This year our Chapter is in charge of the Home Department for the North Florida Fair. Let this be the opportunity to make new friends… When somebody enters an item, take the opportunity to find out something about them… Ask how they made their item. Also, let us make that item that we have been wanting to do and enter it in the Fair!

Let us not miss the opportunity to encourage and visit with our fellow stitchers at the October Social. It is the perfect setting to enjoy what we love best — sewing and friends! And, of course, the best food in town cooked by the best chefs in town — us!

The Nomination Chair is working to find the leadership for next year’s CAB (Chapter Advisory Board). There are plenty of opportunities for members to help. It is not necessary to be an Officer or to be Committee Chair (even though these are needed). Find someone to Co-Chair, or see if there is something that can be split out. The Chapter needs

  • Newsletter Editor (National compliance),
  • Community Service,
  • Publicity (big plans for next year),
  • Membership,
  • Events/Workshops,
  • Neighborhood Group Leader,
  • 4-H , and
  • North Florida Fair.

The jobs are not difficult. Some require more time than others, but are not every day or every week. If you are interested, let me know! Or ask the person presently doing it! Or, if you are interested, “shadow” the person presently doing it!

I am excited about the adventures that have already happened! I am encouraged and excited about the adventures ahead! Join me in the fun ahead!
