Pack your stitchin’ bags! The Tip of Texas Chapter looks forward to welcoming you to Sugar Land, Texas for the Gone Stitchin’ SCR Seminar 2017. This is the first time our chapter is hosting a seminar on our own, and we're doing it from a distance of 350 miles to the seminar location.
The seminar is returning to the fantastic Marriott Sugar Land Town Square! There's lots of room for our seminar plus easy access to shopping and local restaurants, all within walking distance.
Our seminar kicks off with Region Day on Wednesday afternoon with an educational presentation by Dr. Tricia Wilson Nguyen, an MIT graduate with degrees in material science and engineering, and who is the founder of the Thistle Threads. She is currently working in a field called Electronic Textiles and is teaching the online course, Cabinet of Curiosities, throughout 2016. She will be speaking to us about 17th Century Casket Boxes. These boxes were designed and stitched by young women to demonstrate their mastery of needlework. After Tricia's presentation, you may choose from several mini classes, which are listed on the Registration Form. And later we will have Merchandise Night, where you can see (and purchase!) the different vendors' stitching wares.
Our classes start on Thursday and will run through Saturday. We are offering 3-day, 2-day and 1-day opportunities for you to learn new techniques or perfect old ones. On Friday night we will be hosting the Seminar Banquet where we will be celebrating another successful SCR seminar with our EGA stitching family.
Mark your calendar now, start making your plans, and pack your bags to join us at the Gone Stitchin’ SCR Seminar 2017.
See you in June 2017!
