At this time, it’s a disappointment to say that it’s looking like we will have to forego our Open House, for the general public, for a second year. Members – please send your photos and commentary to the newsletter editor by May 2nd for a special May issue featuring the work of our members. It is our “Virtual Open House” for members only.

    Our next outdoor get-together will be at Royal City Park in Guelph on Tuesday July 5th from 10 am to noon. This will be the same place as our other get-togethers, near the pavilion. Remember that this is open to all so feel free to bring a friend. Bring a lawn chair. If it rains, we’ll retreat into the pavilion.

    Our last summer stitch-in will be on World Embroidery Day – Saturday, July 30th. Same place, same time!

    [Park in the laneway near the pavilion or park in the shopping area near the park. There is a little walkway from the parking lot to the park.]
