Our 2021-2022 officers will be installed via Zoom on December 6, 2020. We will also share photos of our Winter Song Tree which will be on display at the Knoxville Museum of Art during the holiday season. Last but not least, we are excited to announce our 2021 theme for the Fantasy of Trees during the Zoom. Zoom details will be in the November newsletter. Members can join via computer or phone.
Margaret Steincamp, AL chapter, has been Region Director of the Tennessee Valley Region for the past three years. The chapters of the region made a donation to the Embroiderer’s Guild in her honor in lieu of a gift. This photo shows Margaret and Marnie Graley, the new Region Director, with a copy of the check for $1800. Margaret has been on the board of TVR for more than 10 years. Thank you to Margaret for all her years of service. Some of the Knoxville chapter may know Margaret as a plural member of the Knoxville chapter.
A lucky buyer took home the beautiful Christmas Fantasy as part of the 2016 Fantasy of Trees. There are 48 stitched and beaded ornaments on the 4.5 foot potted tree. Congratulations to Joan Easterly for her work as chair this year. Knoxville EGA is proud to support East Tennessee Children’s Hospital through Fantasy of Trees. More pictures are in the Member Art Gallery.
