    Dogwood chapter just finished up 3 days as a vendor in the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo in Atlanta. It was a fantastic event, with thousands attending, including a good number of children. We handed out 200 national brochures and over 500 chapter post cards, picked up 3 new members on the spot, and have had many more contact us for further information. We’ve also picked up 16 new followers on our Facebook page. Check out our Facebook page to see our Facebook Live video from the event. Totally fantastic opportunity for our chapter and for EGA!

    • Your booth looks lovely and inviting! And how exciting that you gained new members and followers! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

    I\’m brand spanking new here – well, I guess everyone pretty much is. How do you friend someone?

    • Hi Lynette! That’s a good question! I know if you see someone here that you know, you can click on them, and then click “add friend” under their picture or icon, and a request will be sent to them to approve. But I don’t know if there is a search function for finding people you know! Maybe wiser heads will chime in.

    • Hi Lynette. Glad to be your EGA friend. I’m totally lost on this website. Haven’t learned my way around yet.

    The chapter Just hosted Diane Herrmann for a lecture on symmetry and design followed by a 2 day workshop for Diane’s needlepoint piece ‘Walking the Water’s Edge’. Fantastic opportunity!

    • Oh, our chapter is dying to do that workshop! Did you enjoy it?

      • It was wonderful! Diane gave a lecture the day before the workshop began, on symmetry and design, which members loved. I have zero experience with canvas work and this was a perfect way to get my feet wet. We all learned how to properly lay threads, how to create random eyelets on canvas, how to stitch beads onto canvas and how to create bullion knots on canvas. She also showed us how to use blending threads in order to create the hombre effect or shading from blue to white on the wave. Wonderful class, wonderful teacher, wonderful experience. She even provided tips on how a judge might critique your work. Hope ya’ll get to take it.

    • I love this piece of work. Where did she teach this class and is that pattern available?

      • Hi Pamela, Diane taught it to our chapter in Atlanta, but your chapter can contract to have her come teach it for ya’ll as well. Diane’s website can be found at www.http://dianeherrmann.com/ You should speak with your VP of Programs for your chapter about bringing her in. You’d have to ask Diane if you can buy the kit without taking the class.

    • If you check the Walking On Water’s Edge Facebook page, Diane announced she is teaching the course on a Royal Caribbean cruise on the Anthem in 2018 or 2019.
