and the group partied!
Before the serious partying got under way, the new Board, names all supplied in the recent newsletter, was presented by Liz A., outgoing co-President, to the assembled membership, and was elected by acclamation! Liz thanked very much the incoming new Board members and the continuing officers, without whose generosity of time and expertise our chapter simply couldn't operate.
Co Founders Helen H and Jane S were there, too, so here's an official picture of them.
There was the usual array of great stitching projects
and Ginny and Marilyn conducted a show and tell to give makers a chance to talk about their creations and pass them around to admire.
As always, there was a lot of present exchange, with members trotting about delivering goodies to one another.
This is one of those events where you arrive loaded with your artworks, and food donations for the food pantry, and leave with artworks and presents and cards from other members.
The offerings to the food pantry of Plainsboro were extensive enough to need a cart and assistance to get them out to Liz's car for delivery.
And members longtime and recent had a great time.
Ruth L was in great form
Cynthia came back to visit, bringing husband Michael, while in the background two members seriously consider the dessert table
And here are Amy and Indu, Indu studying the woven stars Liz distributed, to reverse engineer! The stars are Woven Stars for Peace, a project Liz is taking part in.
And here are Jane and Marilyn
and Florence K posing for her holiday portrait.
A vintage party!
