Chapter Project Book Challenge

Our pineapple challenge, updating a thirty-three year old chapter book project, was a lot of fun. Below are some of the results. Place your cursor on the image to see the name of the stitcher.

Open Stitching Time on Zoom

There will be four hour zoom periods where you can drop in to stitch. Join us when you can to stitch a bit and chat. You can leave and come back when you want. We want to experiment with different times/days and would appreciate any feedback. The zoom links will be sent to all members in a separate email.

Socials will be on the second and fourth Sundays of each month from 12-4 pm PST.

Tips for Meeting Attendees:
Mute your microphone
To help keep background noise to a minimum, make sure you mute your microphone when you are not speaking

Be mindful of background noise
When your microphone is not muted, avoid activities that could create additional noise, such as shuffling papers or family members using the bathroom (it has happened!)

Position your camera properly
If you choose to use a web camera, be sure it is in a stable position and focused at eye level, if possible. Doing so helps create a more direct sense of engagement with other participants.

Shirley Chin, VP-Programs, is inviting all our members to share/demonstrate a needlepoint related topic. As many of you are dual members, it would be great to see what your chapter has done in the past. Email Shirley at programs@sdang.org or call her at 619-922-6414 to be scheduled.
