A message from President Sarah W.

(From December 10, 2022)


Hi All


Holiday Season is with us again, and 2023 is nearly here!  Dont forget we have sit n knit tomorrow (Sunday - 12-3) and the meeting next Saturday (10-1).  The holiday party this month is bring your own packed lunch, we will supply dessert, I hope to see more of you there this month so we can finish 2022 on a high.  We will also be having a special raffle this month, tickets will be $1 each and all proceeds will go to Charity.


We have to vote for the board this month, and have posted the current slate in the newsletter, if anyone would like to volunteer to co chair or stand against any post listed please contact Tonya B and Joan W or reply to this email.


Couple of other things to remember please bring your Napkin sweaters to the Meeting so that we can get pictures, they were a big hit at stitches so would love to see them all together.  Also if you took a blanket kit home last month, please bring it back so that we can give them to Cathy for donation, if all the kits are completed that will be 22 blankets donated from the one event which is way more than I hoped we would complete.


Keep Stitching


Sarah W

It's finally here!


The ESSS Potluck Favorites Cookbook is now available in a downloadable pdf format.

The cookbook is a collection of recipes that our members bring to our birthday and holiday potlucks.  We decided to compile this coookbook so that we can enjoy the foods we have always loved at our potlucks while we are unable to enjoy our potlucks together.

The Cookbook is available to all of our members even if you were unable to contribute to it. 


Click here to get the cookbook (at the same link, you can find information about contributing to a future edition of the cookbook)
