Out on a Lark

with Linda Landy
Great News! Linda Landy’s Out on a Lark has been rescheduled for December 9th! There are seats available for this very cool class. The focus of this dramatic bead embroidered collar is a spectacular songbird in all his feathered glory sitting on background of bonded silk Dupioni fabric with a delicately stitched frame. Clouds of iridescent flowers and sweet buds finish off this serene vision. Learn backstitch, stop stitch, python stitch, picot and finishing techniques.
There are seats available, so register now to secure your place in class.

October Nominating Meeting

October is our annual Nominations meeting. It is one of the most important meetings of the year, as we present the nominating committee’s choice for Vice President and Treasurer for 2018. As members, you have the opportunity to nominate other candidates for either of these positions, if you choose. Our 2018 nominee for Vice President is Liana Miller, a long time guild member. For Treasurer, Gwen Gordon has agreed to continue in the position she has filled for us for the past several terms.

If a member wishes to nominate another member for one of these two offices, both the nominating member and the nominee must be present at the meeting. We ask that the nominee be aware of the nomination, and be willing to serve in the nominated position. Elections will be held at the November meeting.

Club Bead 2018

Registration for Club Bead 2018 has gone extremely well, with 35 of the 45 seats taken. Our instructors are sending out an email blast to their constituencies to help fill the last 10 seats.

Three great classes at the lovely Club Med, Sandpiper Bay in Port St. Lucie Florida, featuring world-renowned instructors Cynthia Rutledge, Melanie Potter, and Nancy Cain.Club Bead will take place from February 1st through the 5th of 2018.

Fairchild Ramble

SFJAG will be hosting a booth at Fairchild Tropical Garden’s 76th Annual Ramble. The event will be held on November 10th, 11th, and 12th. There are two slots available on each day at a cost of $75 per slot. Members who are interested in taking a slot for this lovely outdoor event should email Mariela Corte. Spaces are available on a first-come basis. If you have been wanting to get involved in craft shows, this is an excellent opportunity to do so without the usual high cost of such events.

November Loop Chain Class Postponed

Thanks to the visit by dear Irma, the loop-in-loop chain class scheduled for November will be postponed until 2018. Instructors Diedre Skiegen and Bob Galivan both apologize for the schedule change, but their prep time was at the same time as the storm. We will post notice when the class has been re-set.
