Luncheon & Hapsburg Lace Snowflake Sampler

Your Chapter Officers have been busily planning for our upcoming, summertime, outside meetings and June luncheon.

We'll dine at the Radisson in Corning. Menu options are not yet ready to share, but the cost will remain the same as previous years at $20/person. The chapter will cover the difference.

Entree choices are:
  • Mediterranean wrap with cucumbers, spinach, tomato, Feta and red peppers. 
  • Roasted breast of turkey sandwich with bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado mayonnaise on sourdough bread. 
  • Grilled herbed chicken and green apple salad with red onion, crumbled blue cheese, dried cranberries, and candied walnuts.

Dessert will be something chocolate or fresh fruit.

Summer Challenge will be revealed and due at the September meeting.

This Lace Snowflake is a lovely piece that Logan found last year and we would now like to pursue it.

It is a design by Tanja Berlin of Canada. It is 13 x 5 3/8 inches and comes in 4 colorways. The photo shows blue canvas with white thread. Also available is black canvas with white thread, pewter gray canvas with black thread and brown canvas with white thread. Kits are $28.00 and include the canvas, thread and instruction booklet. It also includes Tanja’s shipping costs.

Sign-ups are closed.  Kits will be passed out at the June 7 luncheon and we will begin the stitching.  Please bring your normal stitching supplies.

2021-2022 projects will be shared.
