​Show and Tell

  When you arrive at a Guild meeting with one of your projects, please place your needlework piece on the table marked “Show & Tell”. If you do not wish to speak about your piece, please put it under "Exhibition Only".
  Name tags are provided and we ask that you put your name tag beside your piece. We will all have an opportunity to look at your piece before the meeting and during the break.
   It is important to note that no one is to touch any of the pieces on the table!
  As the final agenda item and if you have placed you piece under "Show & Tell", you will be asked to say a few words about your piece. You may be asked questions regarding process or materials. 
    "Show & Tell" is very informal and is a fun way to see what your fellow stitchers are up to. We also hope that you will be inspired by what you see.
