Summer 2019


Our May 17 meeting at the Ladue Chapel was our last meeting for this half of the 2019 year. We will continue our regular member meetings in September. Meetings in September will remain the same -- morning meeting at 9:30 am and the evening meeting at 6:00 pm. We still have some plans for the summer ... a luncheon, a stitching workshop, and three summer stitch-ins so, please read more about them below.

Stash Sale!!
Have you heard the great news?

You can donate your STASH to our local Gateway Chapter ANG because our chapter is having a STASH sale at the National EGA Seminar Merchandise Night on November 1 and we need your donated stash. All proceeds from our stash sale will go to our chapter.

PLEASE take time to go through your stash and pull those items you once loved so dearly and now know that maybe you won’t get it stitched and perhaps someone else can enjoy and make as beautiful as you dreamed.
We are accepting canvasses (not partially stitched), threads (skeins and cards only), and books in good condition.

We are collecting NOW and need all items by October 17th. You can bring your donations to the September and/or October meetings at Ladue Chapel, or we will pick-up your donations! Just call, text or email us.

Details regarding dates and location for the EGA Seminar are in the July/August Newsletter. You are welcome and encouraged to attend the evening and shop other vendors. There is no entry fee on the EGA Merchandise Night.

Thank you! Hanna, Janice and Mickey

Summer Stitch-Ins

Members Invited to Stitch Together in the Summer


Gateway Chapter meetings are not held during the summer months. Summer is still a perfect time of the year for a day of stitching fun. We’ll continue our popular series of informal stitch-ins; one in June, one in July, and one in August.

Bring your brown bag lunch and your stitching projects. The hostess provides dessert and a beverage. Be sure to RSVP to the hostess at least two days prior to the stitching day. Stitch-ins are 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. but confirm with your hostess.  You can also drop in for a few hours if that is more convenient. Plan to join our summer stitch-ins. RSVP and confirm your plans with the hostess. See the newsletter for the details for July and August.

Jennifer Riefenberg

Pumpkin Patch Workshop

Our June workshop with Jennifer Riefenberg was a wonderful stitching experience.  Jennifer brought us some great lessons on color play, new fibers to try, and provided lots of time for us to stitch and explore!  Many thanks to Kathy and Paul Scioneaux for providing our space and accommodations for the event!
