In 2019: You can check here for programs, birthdays, who's turn for refreshments and to set up for the night; but you will need to go to

for updates and pictures on guild happenings.


Who would have thought that there were that many shades of red on the market and that someone would OWN so many things in all those shades? Well Charlotte Grelk does and what treasures she has in her Red Work collection. Extra thanks for her assistant Christine - she did a fine job of passing along the ones we could touch and get a real close look at.

Guesses are that some of them must have been done by children or first time embroidery-ers and guesses were that those older ones that were missing some of the floss, maybe tieing knots would be helpful in keeping our own work for many generations to come.

It was such a pleasure to see what Charlotte had brought to share with our guild.

Okay everyone, when puppies are quiet - it is best to go check out why?! Such a beautiful quilt to have been tasted before it could become an heirloom. Charlotte marked the spot with scissors cut out of paper and she is working up a plan to fix the hole and retain the memory.

Whether you do Redwork, or blue work, green work, etc. Which ever color strikes your heart - sharing is the best - we all came away with so many ideas.

Charlotte's heart is really into her futuristic redwork and the 3-D style is great, we are just sorry that she had cause to come up with the idea.

Her last showing was a new embroidery work that she had just recently finished - WOW! It's not all red, but it definitely belongs with Charlotte's collection.

Thank you Charlotte for sharing your treasures.
