WIP Challenge Wrap Up and 2014 Christmas Luncheon

On December 13th, the duClay Chapter of EGA hosted our annual Christmas Luncheon at the historic Bensel House.  Nothing like a day spent with needle and thread and like minded friends!
Our luncheon was catered by Brenda (on the right) owner of Fancy J Catering.  As always, the food was in abundance and absolutely delicious!
These photos do not do the food justice!
There were actually 3 desserts but the photo of the third one was blurry.
2015 Challenge Registration opened at the luncheon.  Will Loretta add Ann Dale to her list?
Will The American Sampler, with 1700+ queen stitches, make it to Carole P's list?
Registration for the 2015 WIP Challenge is open until 1/15/2015.  Your list can be emailed to Kris and your check can be mailed to Jackie.  Don't miss out!  This years winner - Kerrie - received $217.50!

Our members also brought some of their 2014 finishes to the luncheon.  Many of these were projects were on 2014 WIP Challenge lists.  You can see all the photos in our Flickr Album.  One thing is certain, there is a lot of talent in our guild!
