Our October meeting was held at Hospice, as we decorated
our tree for their use in a raffle fundraiser. Rose Ann,
Fran, Therese, Cathy, Candy and Trish helped to put the
tree and our handmade ornaments together.
The tree is on display in the Hospice office. Raffle
drawing is Dec 3. If you need raffle tickets to
sell, please let me know by 11-9 and I can bring them to
our retreat on the 12th. They are 3 for $5 or $2 each.
The raffle includes our tree, a gift basket from
Tenuta's and a quilt.
Our November meeting is on the 12th. It is a retreat at
Avalon Parc condominium clubhouse,
Entrance to condo is between Hanson Pools and Sunset
Ridge cemetery on
Green Bay Road.
We will start at 9:00 a.m., have a potluck lunch, and
end in the afternoon. Please let me know you are coming,
so we can set up enough tables and I can make enough
sloppy joes for us. Coffee provided. You will need to
bring your own cream, milk or sweetners. I will have
regular sugar and assorted teas.
Sylvia will be bringing instructions for bookmarks.
If doing this project, bring 12 pairs of bobbins with 1
yard of size 80 tatting cotton on each bobbin. If
you want to use two colors, wind 2 pairs with one color
(workers) and the other 10 pairs with second color
(passive). Bring your pillow and pins and other
regular tools. She will bring prickings printed on
card stock, covered with contract paper and starch to
stiffen the finished bookmark. She does hers in
two hours, so we should be able to complete during the
day. She will also bring copies of five additional
bookmarks, so if you want to do others, bring more
Since we have many talented people, if you have a UFO
that you prefer to work on, need to have help with, etc,
this day would be perfect to complete those already on
the pillow or shuttle.
Our December 10th meeting will be the last meeting at
Pleasant Prairie. Rose Ann’s husband has retired, so the
conference room will no longer be available for our use.
We certainly thank him for enabling us to use this space
since May of 2019.
Please let Rose Ann know of other available locations
for future meetings.
The December meeting will be a box lunch from The Corner
Bakery, optional gift exchange, collection of dues - $6,
IOLI Convention- Nashville, TN- no dates yet.
