Ornaments for Fundraisers: 
We chose to stitch ornaments for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation auction, and for an auction to be held at the EGA seminar.
EGA National: 

While you are stitching this summer, remember to stitch an ornament to be auctioned at EGA National Seminar in Arlington, VA this year.  I've been in contact with both Judy Jeroy and Molly Boyne about our chapter members stitching ornaments for auction at National Seminar in Arlington this year. They both seem really excited about it. 

The ornaments need to be in Molly’s hands no later than October 15th. I will ask the members to get them to me by October 1st so I can send them all in one shipment to Molly. 


For the auction at National Seminar, I have created a database in the meeting group which you will find listed here:



Just click on the database in the list, then click the "Add Row" button in the upper right area of the screen and add your name and email address and whatever you will be donating.


I am asking members to sign up on the database for the EGA auction so I'll have some idea of how many to expect.  We want enough to cover a small tree.  I need to receive your ornaments for the EGA auction by October 1st.  Send them to me at:

Breast Cancer Research Foundation:

As we have for many years, we are also collecting ornaments for the auction to benefit Breast Cancer Research Foundation. through the auction at the Attic Needlework shop in Mesa, AZ. 

Please support both - it's just a small ornament!!!  We have so many members that we ought to be able to cover a small tree for EGA and send a number of ornaments to Karen for the Attic auction.
