December Virtual Holiday Party, December 13, 11:30 am PST
SDANG is pleased to announce our first ever zoom holiday party! Click here to see the flyer. The festivities will include stitching, visiting with friends, eating good food and drinking the beverage of your choice (that you have provide for yourself, of course) and the unboxing of our Holiday Surprise box. Boxes will contain edible and creative treats. The boxes are added fun; you don’t need to purchase one to attend the party. Hope to see you there!
If you are local and would like to pick up your box, you do
not need to pay shipping. Pick up details will be posted
next month. Deadline for purchase is November 23rd.
Zoom has now become integral to many of us. There are many more features on Zoom that we will be using in the future, even after Covid restrictions no longer exist. Many needlepoint teachers are adopting this format. In November, we’ll explore the different functions which will hopefully enhance your experience in Zoom, learning how to change your name, the background behind you, a clearer way to show off your projects without hiding your face, and how to enhance your appearance on camera! Join us as we play in the Zoom sandbox with your phones, ipads, tablets, laptops, and needlepoint projects ready!
We will kick off the new year with a special behind the scenes tour of The Needleworks in Austin Texas hosted by Annette Pappe. The Needleworks is also the sole distributor of Burmilana wool thread. Many of you may not have the opportunity to try out this wonderful wool thread. A kit will be available for you to practice along at the January chapter meeting. We will send out an announcement for signups in December.
ANG Correspondence Course
Remainder of the year is under construction.
Zoom chapter meetings:
Meetings at 6:30 p.m. to give everyone time to connect, overcome technical hiccups and settle in. The program and chapter business will begin at 7 p.m. (All times are PST) We encourage all of you to bring your latest projects and show them off! And we will be holding raffles for those in attendance. The items will be mailed to the winners.
Program door prizes: For those attending the chapter meetings, we will draw names for door prizes. And if you can’t make it, the programs will be recorded for later view.

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 email@example.com or call her at 619-922-6414 to be scheduled.
