2019 Annual Meeting Sept. 7




Pincushions, chemo caps and sewing enthusiasts young and older! Our Annual Meeting held Sept. 7 at the Aboite Community Room combined business with plenty of pleasure as we elected officers for 2020, held our Pincushions on Parade Contest, dined on yummy but healthy fare and shared projects learned throughout this year. Here’s a rundown:


· New officers for 2020 will be: Jenny Draper, president; Marilyn Morgan, vice president; Sherry Filson, treasurer; and Sharon Blank, secretary


· Winner of the Pincushions on Parade contest was a Junior Member (sorry, we cannot use her name on the web) for her high-tech “Enter Your PIN” pincushion (see photo). She won a $20 gift card to JoAnn Fabrics.
Seventeen pincushions were entered in the contest and members brought a total of 27 pincushions for display. From a whimsical turtle to a puffy snowman, tiny dress form and wooden rocking chair—it seems there isn’t anything that can’t become a darling pin holder in our sewing rooms!
