|October's Program - During the October Guild Meeting, Guest Speaker Joyce Daniel showed us a portion of her collection of beautiful Christening gowns and other garments made with delicate laces,tiny tucks and ruffles. Joyce shared with the Guild a bit of her sewing history, beginning as a child and continuing into her college major at UGA and her Graduate degree in Education. Joyce has taught many people to sew and quilt during her lifetime and remains active using her talents to serve others. Joyce has participated in missions to teach sewing to women and girls in Peru. Joyce told Guild Members and Visitors about the organization, "Threads of Love", whose Members make garments that are presented to bereaved parents of deceased Newborns. This Organization provides tiny hand-made garments available to 15+ different hospitals. They meet the 1st Wed. of the month at the Catholic Church across from Publix. Joyce actively supports a group, "The Lydia Project", "a grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit charity whose mission is to provide Cancer patients support for their financial and emotional needs ---." Please go to theLydiaproject.org to learn more about this organization and how you can become involved or help a friend going thru cancer treatment. Joyce Daniel's contact info is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 706 467-3652. She checks email often. |
All the Members who stayed for Joyce's class to learn heirloom sewing and to make a pouch, completed theirs beautifully. Pattie Chapman plans to give hers to her daughter who is getting married soon, as her "something blue”.
The handout Joyce provided, "Precious Petticoats, An Introduction to Heirloom Sewing", is available here.
Many Guild Members asked for a copy of the tender poem that Joyce read during her presentation. It is available below and can be downloaded here.
"God grant that I may see the stitch
until my dying day,
And when my last short thread is clipped
and scissors tucked away,
the work that I have done, live on,
that other folk may see
the pleasure I have known Lord,
from the skill you gave to me.
