Panetone Spring 2018

Panetone Spring 2018 collection is a bit on the bright side for my warm/neutral coloring. However! Look at the beauty of Almost Mauve! Pink Lavender and Harbor Mist will probably be on my mind as I shop by fabric or ready to wear. How about you???

Sewing Plans

Do you have a sewing plan for 2018? Do you have a skill you want to learn? What have you done last year? Let me know!  I'm sure your friendly ASG members would love to read about it.

For me, I am going to focus on items I can't buy for myself and just have fun in the sewing room. I am trying to have confidence in my choices and just cut into that fabric that I have been holding on to. But some fabrics like the owl print silk that I bought on our last bus trip, is still waiting for the right pattern.

This is a run down of my dress sewing highlights for the past year. Enjoy!

IT’S ELECTION TIME FOR YOUR 2018 CHAPTER ADVISORY BOARD

We are looking for nominations to fill all three elected CAB positions:

These three positions MUST be filled to continue as a Chartered Chapter. The elected positions are for a one year term and a member may be elected to the same position for four consecutive years. The President nominee needs to be a current member of CAB.
Names to be included on the ballot for these three positions must be received by September 14, 2017. Please send to Shirley R. The ballot will be mailed out by the end of September. Look for it in your newsletter. Please return your ballot by November 1, 2017.

Election results will be presented at our Annual Luncheon on Saturday, November 4, 2017. 


In addition to these elected positions, our chapter has nine (9) additional participation opportunities that are vital to keeping our Chapter in good running order. The newly elected President to the CAB will appoint the following non-elected positions for 2018:

Retail Liaison 
Neighborhood Group Liaison 
Historian
Blog Manager 
Membership 
Newsletter Editor
Publicity
Family & Consumer Science Member at Large

Education

We know there is a lot of interested members who would like to participate. YOU can make a positive difference in our Chapter.  These 9 positions may be appointed, but our incoming president will need to know who is interested. Please contact Shirley R. to share your talents by throwing in your hat to volunteer. She can also give you information about any position or help you decide which one you would best fit. If you are unsure if you have the time, ability, experience of seniority (time in the Chapter), please attend the next CAB meeting and you understand that none of us works in a vacuum, we are a community of sewers and care for and help one another! We need your help and your participation to make our Chapter stronger and more effective in fulfilling the wishes of our membership. These positions can be shared with another member making it even easier! Come join us and make our Chapter even better as many new ideas are welcome!
