Celestial Stitchers Chapter - News

Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church, corner of Spring and Prospect Streets in Shrewsbury. Second Thursday of the month (unless otherwise noted) 6:30-9:30 p.m.

anniversary of chartering as a chapter in 2016. The following report highlights our metrics for calendar year 2016.
We began the year with 17 members and close the year with 15 members. Three members did not renew in May and we have had one new member. Of the three non-renewing members, one was due to a relocation and two were due to activity/interest level.
Our chapter began as a computer and internet savvy group and has predominately maintained that status. Of our current membership, only three members do not have email access.
The chapter has two life members.
Our newsletter is published quarterly and
distributed electronically with hard copies to
members not having email.
We conducted a formal, paper survey in 2015 to
determine program interest levels. Based on the interest of the group we targeted to have four quarterly offerings. Members desire the opportunity to learn something new, but do not want to add to their level of unfinished projects. As an evening chapter, stitching time during our monthly meetings is limited, working on projects over a few monthly meetings has been positively accepted.

For 2017 we have planned the first half of the year, but are leaving time open to react to the interests of the chapter. We rely heavily on Petite Projects and Designers Across America offerings and by
leaving time open if a new offering that appeals to our members is published we can incorporate it into our program year.
