JOIN US!! Visitors always welcome...
and yes we hope you will join!!
The most recent issue of our Member magazine. Four times a year. This is probably my favorite issue as it deals with the Community service of Wee Care that SAGA is internationally [yes world wide] involved with. In a quick summary...we construct, smock, embroider, knit etc baby gowns for premature or infant losses . As a former Maternity/OB nurse, this is close to my heart!! And lucky for us! our National WeeCare chair is a Holly Berry Member!!
SAGA is also on Facebook with a Saga Smockalong page. OR Smock Across America page. Currently, we are smocking ornaments for our Troops.
Check out the website : SAGA and see what this smock a long is all about. You will find this photo which will link you to the directions!!
On September 16th, there will be some supplies for this smock a long at our meeting. AT THE LIBRARY!!
Besides smocking, we also do all different sewing or embroidery things. We are dedicated to keeping the fine art of needle work alive.
"The purpose of the Smocking Arts Guild of America is to preserve and foster the art of smocking and related needlework for future generations through education, service, communication and quality workmanship."
Holly Berries meet the third Wednesday of the month from September to June. We are a daytime meeting from 12pm to 3pm. We also have informal and formal class meetings and programs at other times.
